Label Text:
The title of this print can be found within the round, white cartouche, while the series title is identified within the red cartouche, both at upper-right. This print bears the signature "Hiroshige ga" ('drawn by Hiroshige') at lower-left in the other red cartouche. Immediately to the left of the signature is the circular date-aratame seal of the censor, which indicates this print was approved in 1862 (Bunkyū 2). The seal of publisher Izumiya Ichibei of the firm Kansendō can be found in the rectangular cartouche printed in the left margin.
