Oban Yoko-e. Generally good with some minute pinholes and other minor flaws.
The beach at Takanawa with a row of food stalls on the left and an inn on the right. The lanterns are all marked with Hiroshige’s “Hiro” seal. Note the long “shadows” on the beach. This is perhaps the best of Hiroshige’s depictions of the moon at Takanawa.
