A scene from daily life during the late Edo period: Country folk cleaning rice. Two men drudge up the hillside bringing sacks of unhulled rice to be hulled and washed. Two women use a pail and a basket to wash freshly hulled rice in the water flowing through the trough. A child with a pet turtle on a leash watches the activity.
