"Azuma Fuzoku; Fuku Tsukushi" (Eastern Customs and Manners; Collection of Fuku). The series compiles scenes including the meaning of the word "fuku" (happiness, clothing, wealth, etc.). People are preparing for the Sanno festival dance and parade. On the right are two "takomae" (security personnel tasked with clearing crowds in front of a festival parade). They are in traditional uniforms featuring peonies, and are wearing hats decorated with a peony. Meiji emperor's horse carriage and procession are passing by in the background.
