A traveling middle-aged couple is appeasing their hunger at a tavern. The appearance of the tavern lady ladling out drinks for her customers and various rice and wine vessels on the cooking platform create a vivid representation of the taverns of that time. The landscape in the foreground is captured in reverse perspective, which helps increase the sense of reality.
