About the Art

This spot on the Sumida river bank near Ryogoku bridge was famous for its ferry landing and the stunning view of Mt. Fuji it offered. 

This ukiyo-e print shows the silhouette Mt. Fuji wrapped in the orange light of the setting sun. While dusk is falling, the far buildings and boats fade away into gray shadows.

The ferryboat is setting out from Honjo district to cross the Sumida River to Onmaya-gashi. The passengers (including samurai, pedlars, a nursing mother, a blind man, a Buddhist monk, a bird-catcher with his lime-covered pole and boatman) look over the water towards the evening silhouette of Mt Fuji on the horizon. 

Pleasure boats gather at Ryogoku bridge downstream; while trees surround the government rice warehouses on the far bank to right.
