We see the stone jetties that protect the land from storms also provide good fishing, as attested by the netters and anglers all around. We see two sails at bottom catching the breeze, with a view of Nishi Honganji Temple in Tsukiji.
Condition: Excellent color. Very good impression and condition. Light smudges of pigment in margins and on one of the sails.
