Known by the nickname “99-mile” (Kujukuri), the coast of Yazashi Bay spanned the entire western coast of Kazusa Province. Since this area was known for its variety of seafood, it is no surprise that Hiroshige focuses on the beachside activities of the fishermen in this design. As teams of men seven strong pull in the nets, others wait on the sand with baskets in hand, ready to transport the catch of the day. In some impressions of this design, kimetsubushi (uniform woodgrain printing) is visible in the grey of the beach, lending texture to the sand. Today, the former Kazusa Province is part of Chiba Prefecture.
