The view is from the Hanakawado area, looking the top of the gate of the Mimeguri Shrine across the Sumida River.
Go up the stairs of the river bank near the roof boat, you will see the gate of the Mimeguri Shrine ahead and a farmer’s house in Suzaki village on the left.
This sake cup is thought to be a gifr from some superior. It has an inscription, ‘三囲/可交斎 (Mimeguri/ Kakosai)’ on the bottom of the cup.
