Four geisha are relaxing on the "engawa" porch of a guest room with windows, looking at the garden. The woman on the left has her hair arranged in "marumage" style with floral hairpins and her striped sash tied in "chidori-musubi" fashion. She is holding a "shamisen" lute. The slightly elderly woman next to her is wearing black lacquer clogs with high supports. Next to her is an apprentice geisha, and the woman on the far right wears a brightly coloured kimono. A reed chair is visible on the right. Taken in the late Meiji or Taisho Period.
