Notes: Narazaki tells us that 'In addition to the painterly feel of this image - suggestive of a stage setting and somewhat too composed - this work is extremely accomplished. The reflection of the lantern light is clouded by the wet. The mood of the dark, serene and starlit night is certainly expressed very effectively. The colour tones produce a lucid feel, evoking a sense of total silence, and this creates a pleasing impression'. - Hotei Vol. 1; pg. 73
