Mosquito nets were hung from four corners of the room to protect against mosquitoes while sleeping. The material used for these nets was cotton or linen, and most were colored yellowish green. The pillow used by the woman lying down is a box pillow. This pillow prevented the Japanese-style hair from coming undone during sleep. The other woman holds a long pipe. Japanese women often smoked up until the end of the Meiji era.
