The name Goshiki means “five colors” and refers to the different shades of pebbles found on this beach. Located in the Inland Sea between Honshu and Shikoku, Awaji Island was famous for its sea bream. In this design, Hiroshige alludes to this local delicacy through a fishing scene. Teams of fishermen work together to manage the large net that floats between them. One can imagine the bounty of fish they will catch that day. The former Awaji Province is part of modern Hyogo Prefecture.
