More about this print: A courtesan from the port town of Muro on the Seto Inland Sea drifts past the base of a huge torii, or sacred gate, off the shore of the Shinto shrine at Itsukushima island (insert). She is partly hidden behind her oversized traveling hat, and the musical instrument at her feet may indicate that she has been involved in the yearly Kangensai festival of wind and string instruments.
