Notes: 'The low-hanging crescent moon and the shadows of the pine are indicative of a misty evening in autumn. The pleasure district in the Kasuhe district of Kanazawa is called Nagare ('Stream') by the locals because it faces the Asano river. Somehow the gurgling of the water and the sensuous sounds of the shamisen (three-stringed musical instrument) are full of sorrow'. - Hotei Vol. 1; pg. 21
