Hasui himself wrote the following about this work: “The setting in this work is a summer evening. The shadows beneath the bridge at twilight contrast the light of the sunset, creating a fine impression. A sailboat moves slowly down the river; this ordinary scene was one that delighted me. Across the river is Nakazu.No incongruous western-style buildings are visible there, and I could not help but think that this area recalled the period when Hokusai designed his Sumidagawa Ryogan ichiran.”
