70602-0013 - Kago and Rickshaw


Outside Meiji 1890s Unknown
Group portrait of a woman holding a fan in a kago (palanquin) carried by two bearers, and a woman holding a parasol in a rickshaw, and its puller on a road in the countryside. The kago bearers wear head towels, short coats and straw sandals. They are holding ikizue (breath sticks) to regulate their breathing while walking. During the Meiji Period (1868-1912), the rickshaw quickly replaced the kago. By 1872, some 40,000 rickshaws were operating in Tokyo alone.
