From http://www.kyoto.travel/whats_new/the_oharame_matsuri_festival_1.html : The term “Oharame” refers to women peddlers who, from the Heian period all the way to the Meiji era, walked about town, selling small items from the Ohara Village like firewood, flowers, and agricultural products. Oharame were famous for carrying their wares on their heads.
