The Courtesan HInazuru of the Chôjiya
Date: 1793
“Hinazuru of the Chôjiya, [kamuro:] Tsuruji, Tsuruno”. The courtesan Hinazuru relaxes, holding a fan in her right hand, her obi loosely tied and her outer garment of translucent black falling back around her shoulders. The kyoka poem has been translated as: “The Jewel River is white/In the morning mist./Cloth bleaching on a fence/Looks like a white kimono on a stand/At Hassaku Festival Time. Shôtôtei.” (Translation courtesy of Asano & Clark.)
