The caption reads "Ogiya." The rakugo story "The Fox of Oji" was created to promote this establishment. The story goes that a man invites a girl, who is really a fox, to Ogiya for dinner. He gets her get drunk and tries to run away so that she has to pay the bill. A few days later the man goes to the fox with manju (sweet buns) to apologize. She replies, "These manju could be made of horse dung," which is the punch line.
