A woman is riding on a palanquin used for road and mountain passages. The bottom part of the seat is made of braided bamboo and shows no sagging. A cushion absorbed shocks. The palanquin bearer wore a headband and short coat and held an "ikizue" (breath stick) to regulate his breathing while carrying the palanquin.
