Catalogue Description:
This scene framed by double-petalled cherry blossoms looks down on the Sumida River in the district known as Mukojima. The people on the lower left are walking toward the Hashiba Ferry (see print 37 from the series) and in the distance is a lumber raft and two cargo ships. At the lower right is a shrine, its entrance seen by the lantern-flanked stone "torii." This is "Suijin no Mori," the "grove of the Water God," a shrine dedicated to the Sumida River. In the center is Mount Tsukuba.
