This scene by prolific ukiyo-e artist Toyohara Chikanobu (1838–1912) depicts a court lady beautifully adorned in her kimono, strolling through a scented garden on a warm summer's evening under the full moon. On the right, a young girl leans over the railing, while a woman plucks the strings of a koto (a 13-string zither) to accompany the stroller. Chikanobu's woodblock prints cover many common ukiyo-e subjects, but he is most famous for his portrayal of women's fashions, pastimes and customs.
