A woman in a cross-patterned shirt and pleated skirt, Mine Okubo, stands in the right middle ground as a pregnant woman walks by, accompanied by eight children of varying ages. The woman, wearing a flower-patterned dress, has her hair in a bun, and holds the hand of a small girl. An older girl follows carrying an infant in her arms. Two barracks and an electric pole are visible in the left background.
