Late in an early spring day, we sit on the second floor of one of the teahouses in front of Massaki Inari Shrine, savoring the dengaku—small squares of skewered tofu brushed with a sweet miso sauce and grilled over charcoal—that was the famed signature dish of these restaurants. We have here reversed directions from the previous print and are now on the west side of the Sumida River looking northeast.

Suijin Shrine is just visible in the grove of trees to the right. In the distance we see the Uchigawa Inlet, the Sekiya plains, and the twin peaks of Mount Tsukuba.
