Beneath the light of the full moon, the landscape along the Seta River slumbers in shades of grey. As Mount Ibuki peaks in shadow to the upper right of the scene, the warm glow of riverside teahouses beckons in the foreground. Though Hiroshige does not depict Ishiyama Temple itself, the teahouses mark the periphery of the temple grounds. The use of black bokashi (gradation) along the top edge emphasizes the depth of night. The printer achieved this gradation by brushing color on the dampened woodblock then printing it onto the paper. Today, the former Omi Province belongs to Shiga Prefecture.
