The young woman runs toward the right, bent down with her head under the umbrella, held with both hands, her kimono sleeves flying behind her creating a swooping movement. The kimono, tied in the back, flows around her running legs. Her face is fair and delicate, her black hair is combed back and tied up into a bun. The rain is depicted with heavy diagonal strokes of black ink pouring from a dark cloud in the upper right, with two angular lightning bolts flashing from the sky.
