In this winter scene, people walk along a snow-covered street beside a bright blue stream. Three sparrows flutter about, looking for food. People shelter themselves from the falling snow with hats and umbrellas and leave trails of gray footprints as they hurry on their way. The snow dots the sky and water and weighs down the green bamboo on the right side of the picture, bending its branches.

This is the last of four famous snow scenes that feature bright colors against falling snow. In the distance is the district known as Atagoshita, after its location beneath Mount Atago.
