Heavy snow falls on Imari Bay as the sea fades into the night. Looking out from Kitamatsura, the snow-covered roofs of a small village sit to the bottom left as Iki Island appears on the horizon. Though the scene evokes a winter chill, this province was typically too warm to receive such heavy snow. In this design, Hiroshige depends more on his imagination than reality, composing a scene of a seasonal beauty rarely experienced in Iki Province. Today, the former Iki Province belongs to Nagasaki Prefecture.
