Two women in Houshuku Dance costumes pose in a photograph studio. They wear multilayer "nagajuban," hand towels around their necks, and hold bamboo hats. The woman in front is holding a small lantern with "Hoshukubo "written on it. A celebratory dance, Hoshuku Odori was performed by the citizens of Kyoto at the accession of Emperor Taisho in November 1915. It is said that people participated in gala parades and neighbourhoods competed for the most fashionable costumes, fabrics, and patterns.
