Perched atop Abuto Cape, a small temple overlooks the Inland Sea. A Zen Buddhist site, Kannon Temple is home to an eleven-faced stone sculpture of the Bodhisattva Kannon known as Abuto Kannon. Associated with conception and childbirth, this temple continues to attract expectant mothers wishing for a safe delivery. From the purple and black on the horizon, to the pale light reflected from the sea onto cliff base, the use of bokashi (gradation) lends a serene atmosphere to the night. Even the full moon subtly breaks through the darkness with the delicate use of black shading. While Hiroshige likely suggested colors for the final print, it was the printer who executed this masterful bokashi. Today, Bingo Province belongs to eastern Hiroshima Prefecture.
