Title: In front of the Kameido Tenjin shrine fan print
A woman is coming down the half-moon shaped bridge taikobashi, facing Kameido Tenjin shrine. She is walking on the female bridge, onnabashi. She seems dressed for festivities, and is tucking a packet into her kimono. This is an uchiwa-e, or untrimmed fan print.
“Kameido no mae” There is another taikobashi called the male bridge, otokobashi just after one goes through the big gate, ootorii of the shrine.
Condition: Very good impression, color and condition.
