Girls with beautiful kimono are standing with "bangasa" umbrellas. A large tree is visible in the background. Bangasa umbrellas became popular among the common people during the Edo Period and were used widely. Prior to the late-18th century, straw raincoats and sedge hats were used for protection from the rain.
