The tower in the foreground is the Drum Tower (kuro) of the Ekoin Monastery which belonged to the Jodo (Pure Earth) Buddhist school. The Monastery was well known for it`s sumo wrestling matches and the red drum that can be partially seen on the tower announces the start of a contest while the pieces of dangling cloth (bonten) indicate that the weather is favourable. The Moto-Yanagashi Bridge, the `True Willow Bridge` can be seen across the river. Excellent impression and colours, overal good condition, some holes repaired from behind and paper strip added at the bottom of sheet, very skilfully done.
