One of Chikanobu's best known series; designed in a triptych format, depicting daily activities and annual events which took place in the Edo castle, where the court ladies of the Tokugawa family resided in a secluded situation.

The princess in the centre print, after bathing, wears a summer Kimono with blue hollyhock leaves on white. A maid on the right is giving breeze air and the other serving a cold tea. The machinery fan was manually operated and seen during the Edo period.
