In this print, one of a series of ten views of "tea house" districts, Kiyonaga has depicted two women and a child strolling along the shore by the sea wall at Takanawa. A woman at left shields her eyes from the summer sun with her fan, and has her obi tied in front of her.  The younger looking companion holding her hand wears a gaily flowered kimono, which has fallen wide open.  A child walks with them, gesturing to the side of the print.  The front portion of a boat and wall of a town or temple lie behind them.<br />This is an especially well-preserved print, where even the indigo blue is still visible.
