Shitaya Hirokoji - Handsome view of a group of women with matching umbrellas making their way down a busy street on their way to view cherry blossoms. The large building on the corner is the silk store "Ito Matsuzakaya," and two delivery men are just setting off with packs of goods on their backs, wrapped in blue cloth bearing the shop's crest. At bottom center, a group of samurai can be identified by their two swords. In the distance, a cloud edged with rose and blue drifts across the deep green of a tree-covered hill. Attractively colored with wonderful architectural detail.
