In this print, a fashionably dressed woman holds out a parasol as she gazes at cherry blossoms. She stands close to her palanquin, which is decorated with elaborate metal fittings. Along with his wife, Ikeda Shoen (1888–1917), Ikeda Terukata trained with print artist Mizuno Toshikata (1866–1908) and focused on designs of beautiful women.
