Mokuboji Temple, Uchigawa Inlet, Gozensaihata, 1857 - Attractive depiction of the Uchigawa Inlet off the Sumida River. In the foreground, two beauties disembark from a boat to dine at the restaurant seen at right, which was part of the Mokuboji Temple complex. The Uehan Restaurant was famous for its clams and taro dishes. A bridge stretches over the water in the center, the view framed by pines. Beyond the trees at left was the Gozensaihata or "Honorable Vegetable Garden," which supplied fresh vegetables for the shogun. A rosy glow spreads along the horizon as the sun begins to set. An attractive design, nicely colored and shaded.
