To the far right, a waterfall flows between cherry blossoms in full bloom as the cliffside curls over Ganman Cave. To the left, Hiroshige labels “Falcon Nest Rock,” its twin-pined peak half hidden beyond the margin. Ganman Cave was a natural wonder of Noto Province. Hewn by the steady erosion of sea water, the caves were located on the rugged coast of Noto Peninsula. Today you can still visit “Gate Rock,” the namesake of the cave, as well as the other sea caves and tide pools around the area. The former Noto Province now belongs to northern Ishikawa Prefecture.
