Cooling off at Shijo (Shijo noryo)

Cooling off at Shijo (Shijo noryo)

‘Cooling off’ at Kamo river in high summer is a centuries-old part of Kyoto culture. Restaurants built platforms over the shallow streamed of Kamo river were guests could dine, take pleasure in company, and enjoy the evening breeze. Here a young waitress is resting on one of the teahouse platforms near Shijo Bridge. (printed December 1885)
