Palanquin carriers dressed in various attire but always held a cane. This cane is called "ikizue" and was used to rest. When it rained, palanquin carriers wore hats and straw coats, but in the case of a yamakago as in the photograph, there was nothing more than a simple roof, so the passenger must have gotten wet.
