The Second National Industrial Exhibition, Gokaku-do [pentagonal annex] (dai ni kai Naikaku Kangyo Hakurannkai nai gokaku-do). We see a woman in western dress approaching the Pentagonal Hall, an annex to the industrial exhibition of 1881 in Ueno Park. Her veil and the extreme perspective lend this work an almost vertiginous aspect.
