    Help with Japanese

    Does anyone here read Nipponese?

    I got an old embroidery painting at the auction and the only thing I can see to identify it is a couple of what look like Japanese Hiragana characters on a flag in the corner...

    Anyone have a clue? Thanks for help...

    I paid $20 at Upwork, and they told me the banner/flag says "Rice" or Meal" ("mishi" in the Hiragana) and the painting is from Edo era (before 1865). Probably a picture of a place where a traveler could get eats...
