Label copy
The inscription names the adult woman as Chôzan, the head courtesan of the Chôjiya Tea House, and two child attendants, Sakura and Chikashi (?). However, only one child is visible in the print, suggesting that it may have originally been part of a diptych. Like most pillar prints, this one is extremely burned from long exposure to light.
