Travelers follow the well-worn path to Takashi Shrine in the foreground as Osaka Bay stretches to the horizon. Far below the pine-covered slope, the waves lap against Takashi Beach, one of many religious sites along the coast. In this impression, the use of kimetsubushi (uniform woodgrain printing) lends texture to expansive blue of Osaka Bay. The printer achieved this effect by roughening the color block with stiff brushes or pads before inking its surface. The former Izumi Province is now part of southern Osaka Prefecture.
