Caption by Homer Yasui: "This picture of an unknown Japanese woman and a younger, equally unknown Japanese woman [shows] the formal montsuki--which is an over-garment which has the family crest placed on it in 5 defined places. The younger woman is wearing what looks like a fancy kapogi--but it looks to good to be just a working apron, so it must be called something else in Japanese."
