Comments - Lovely scene of Prince Genji and beauties enjoying a boat ride on a moonlit evening. The famous Eight Views of Omi are shown in the background, with each location identified by a name block. In the center, a standing beauty pauses to look up at the full moon, a poem slip that she has just written in her hand. A woman kneeling by her side mixes ink on an ink stone. At right, Genji relaxes on a cushion with a fan in hand, smiling at his companion. An attractive design.
