Description:
A tall pine tree divides the print in half. The left side shows the architectural structure of a welcome torii as the right side is filled with people rummaging through the city streets. Shops open show people enjoying a meal. A pair of women are huddled together in kimonos, samurai are patrolling the street, while merchants are attempting to hustle their wares. This street view’s perspective makes the scene go on beyond view.
