As night shrouds the village, the flames of the fishing boats punctuate the darkness on Lake Renko. Rather than to light the way for the boats, fishermen lit these flames to attract the fish.

Though Hiroshige nods towards the local specialty (meibutsu) of the area, he does not neglect the natural beauty associated with Kanazawa. Today, the former Kaga Province belongs to southern and western Ishikawa Prefecture.
