“Snow Scene at Koume Hikifune-dôri” (Koume Hikifuni-dôri yuki no kei). Two women walk near a bridge by a riverbank, one holding a Japanese-style umbrella, and one holding a western-style umbrella. As this is a midday scene in traditional countryside, we don’t feel any of the alienation we see in the more modern-looking street scenes. The women are facing us, and seemed engaged in pleasant conversation.
