Narazaki notes that 'This picture appears in two versions. The sheets of rain are expressed through the use of baren [pad used to apply colour during printing]. Thick low-hanging clouds are unique to the coast of the Sea of Japan. The variation seen in the illustration of the rain in this design is a result of the amount of pressure placed on the baren during printing'. A watercolor based on this design is illustrated in Fig. 6. Hotei Vol. 1; pg. 91.
