This is a figure painting on a hanging scroll. There are many colors present with the background generally of a brown hue and the figure containing predominantly black and white with many intricate and colorful details. The figure is centered in the middle and looks to the right of the scroll (the viewer&#39;s left). The woman holds one hand up to her shoulder (holding the outermost layer of her kimono) while the other lies at her side. The kimono she is wearing has many layers. Most notable is the outer white layer lined with a bright red with a colorful floral pattern. The black layer has a circular design that covers a light blue layer. Her obi is a darker gray with a blue floral and circular pattern. Her geta have blue straps. There is a signature at the bottom right corner which is followed by a red stamp.&nbsp;

The quoined edges of a tall wall at the right leads to a low wall on the right side in the foreground. In the foreground at the left are three children.
