As with many of Hiroshige II's prints, those comprising the series 'One Hundred Famous Views in the Various Provinces' borrowed compositional elements from his teacher Hiroshige I Utagawa, in this case echoing his 'Famous Views of the Sixty-odd Provinces'. At this point, he had just started using his teacher's name, who had recently passed away, therefore the prints in this series are signed 'Hiroshige'.
