Shell gathering at low tide was a recreation. Especially at the time of spring tide (from March 3 through 7 on the lunar calendar), the gap between high and low tides is large. This outing on the beach is observed on March 3 in many areas of Japan. It is a major event of the season. This photograph must have been taken in a studio because the women are wearing socks.
