The courtesan Hinatsuru of the Choji-ya house is elegantly dressed in a kimono decorated with fallen maple leaves and pine needles. She sits holding a pipe next to a lacquer stand supporting a bird in a cage. Beneath is a pile of books, writing brushes and a vase of peacock feathers. Other designs from the same series are in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, accession nos. 21.6939, 21.6940, 21.6938 and 21.6941.
