A solitary traveler is walking through the village, where women are peeling and drying gourds. In the background is a range of hills, printed in color block only. This station, located in a desolate rural area, was famous for its production of dried gourd shavings for use in Japanese dishes. Women are busy making them: One is shaving a gourd, one is helping the shavers, and one is drying the shaved gourd on a rope.
