Bashô’s Hermitage
Date: 1857
Bashô’s Hermitage and Camellia Hill on the Kanda Aqueduct at Sekiguchi. 1st, or deluxe edition. To the right was Suijinsha, a shrine to the water god that protected the Aqueduct, located just out of view. The structure on the slope is the Ryûgean, a hermitage of the nearby Zen Buddhist temple, known for its beautiful setting and view of the rice fields below. In the far distance we see a row of trees that is now the location of Waseda University.
