Narazaki writes: 'A run of fifty was printed for this image on 7 September 1954. The foreground comprises a stand of trees and rural houses, and shadows are cast on a field of snow by tree branches to the left. The print shows a bright, tranquil rural scene during the chill of winter; the solitary figure of an old woman has been added as a detail. There has been an attempt to link the composition and color scheme with the Mount Fuji in 'Clearing after a snowfall, Yoshida' [Hotei #471]. They are identical even though almost ten years has passed since the production of that earlier design.' - Hotei Vol. 1 pg. 130
