Richard Lane notes: "During his stay in Osaka, Gakutei produced a remarkable set of landscape prints, one shown here: a covered pleasure boat with geisha and guests being poled under the "Fan Bridge" as the autumn moon looms over the scene. The design and printing are detailed and immaculate, lying somewhere between ukiyo-e and surimono techniques, and the setting could easily be translated intact to a Kabuki stage."
