On the left is a restaurant that, according to the two white signs, offers grilled clams (yaki hamaguri) as its specialty. The sign above the seated porter dressed in a loincloth is a “product placement” for the face powder Senjōko, sold at Kyobashi in Edo, a business that probably underwrote parts of the publication costs of this print.
