The English title is "Wayside Resting Place." This is probably the "endai" bench at a teahouse on the Mukojima embankment. The kimono style of the three dressed-up girls indicates that they are "geigi" (young geisha). The food on the bench appears to be manju sweet buns. Sakura-mochi (cherry cake), which people ate in the cherry-blossom season, is said to have been created by Yamamoto Shinroku, the gateman at Chomeiji Temple in Mukojima during the Genroku Period.
