A geisha is shown strolling in the countryside, with her right hand over her forehead--as if looking into the distance--and a basket in her left hand. The backdrop is the rising sun-the give-away that this is a New Year’s print—seen over distant mountains. A poem lies on the left-hand side of the print.
