oldtimejapan: 大原女 Oharame. About 1900, near Kyoto, Japan. A rural town nestled in the mountains about 14 kilometers north of the heart of Kyoto, Ohara’s most iconic image is its “Oharame.” Oharame were the female peddlers that many years ago dressed in distinctive work clothes and walked into the city to sell produce from the countryside. These trips into town provided a precious supplementary income for farmers.
