A lovely image from the Edo period with a beauty (bijin) standing on a bridge. She is lifting her kimono so as to walk easier showing her `geta` shoes. The kimono is beautifully decorated with detail of ducks and cherry blossoms on swirling water and is tied with a striped obi. Below the bridge, possibly Nihonbashi, the water is full of boats and bustling activity. A good impression with excellent colours in good condition, slight loss lower left corner, a few holes repaired, some soiling and creasing.
