Physical description:

Behind the woman, in a circular inset, holiday-makers in sun-hats enjoy themselves on a beach with a view of mount Fuji. Despite the sun hats, the figures all appear to be men, one who has even kept his shirt on while in the water. Immediately behind the woman is a shallow ceramic goldfish bowl with small lotus plants.
