Flower Pavilion, Dango Slope, Sendagi - Lovely print depiction of the Dango Slope and the Flower Pavilion at Sendagi. In the foreground visitors relax at tea stands and stroll beneath the flowering cherry trees covered with pink and white blossoms. A rosy tinged cloud separates with design, with steps bordered with craggy rocks leading up the hill at right to the Flower Pavilion itself, which offered superb views from the third story. The slope is covered with lush green trees and foliage, offering a contrast with the pastel colors below. A charming design with fine bokashi shading in the clouds and sky.
