The picture is created with sprinkled metallic powders on the vermilion lacquer background. It shows the gate of Mimeguri-jinjya shrine over the bank of Sumida river. A farmer’s house in Suzaki village can be seen ahead of the gate. A roof boat is dropping the anchor off the river. The opposite shore is found at the bottom of the picture.
It has an inscription “Mimeguri/ Kakosai” inside the bottom stand. It is thought to be a gift from a superior.
