A physician is checking the pulse of a woman wearing a "dotera" (heavy quilt in the shape of kimono). Japanese physicians of the Edo and early Meiji Period shaved heir heads. The sword, tobacco tray and a tobacco pipe, and tea chest have probably been set up to produce this coloured photograph as a souvenir for foreigners.
