A teahouse by the Mitarashi River at Tadasunomori in Shimogamo is depicted. A small boat carrying two women arrives at this simple "sukiya" style teahouse. The Mitarashi River originates from a spring at Shimogamo Shinto Shrine. Fires were lit here in mid-July and visitors enjoyed "Mitarashi Dango" (dumplings) on the cool terraces of the teahouses.
