    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...

    Have we reached the ultimate stage of absurdity where some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, while other people are not held responsible for what they themselves are doing today?

    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...
