As Hasui himself wrote “There are seven marshes of different sizes in the vicinity of the (Tsuta) Spa. This one the Tsuta marsh, is outstanding because of its intimate feel as seen, for example in the densely vegetated bank and the colour of the tranquil water. I felt as if I were looking at a picture from an old story book; the scene is set in the early hours of the morning, and two men in a small boat pull in a net set the night before.”
