About the object

In Ukamuse, one of Japan's most famous restaurants, three courtesans in finely patterned kimonos enjoy themselves on the balcony. A woman is leaning over the parapet and watching the passersby. The venue was legendary, not only because it was described in literature and poetry, but also for its unusual sake bowls with a capacity of 1.3 litres.
