Narazaki writes that 'The conceit of this work is the effect of a nocturnal scene of cherries as the silence of night descends and of the bold depiction of the amusement areas visible through the trees. This work was sketched in February 1934, produced on 2 May that year and published in February 1935'. Hotei Vol. 1; pg. 104
