The large pine tree in the foreground, its overhanging branch carefully supported by three posts, is another one of several famous pines depicted in this series. The name Five Pines originated in the planting of five separate trees at intervals along the Onagi Canal. By this date, four had died, leaving only this one. It was a huge old tree, growing out over the water from within the walls of an estate of the daimyo, or military lord, of Ayabe.
