The woman wears a deep red and white striped kimono. Horizonal stripes above the waist, and vertical strips below, with a grey layer underneath. Her flowing kimono accentuates her pose, opening slightly at the floor to reveal one sandaled foot. Hands are hidden within the robe across her torso. Her black hair is secured into buns with stick ornaments, her small lips are painted red, with mouth slightly open. A tree branch of pink flowers blooms above, perhaps cherry blossoms, framing her head. The background is warm tones, with simple lines of undefined space with vertical folding shade on left.
