160301-0028 - Women Fishing


Yokohama Meiji 1890s Unknown

Women in kimono and traditional hairdo are gathering shellfish at low tide at Negishi (根岸) in Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture. They have their kimono pulled up.

This beautiful rural landscape was a short distance from the foreign settlement.

Negishi was called Mississippi Bay by the foreigners. Apparently this was coined by Commodore Perry whose flagship bore that name.
