Title: Anyoji Temple in Maruyama at Night

A full moon rises behind a gentle slope behind Anyoji Temple. Looking closely, we see a group of visitors leaving the temple, each carrying a red lantern. The series Miyako meisho no uchi (Set of Famous Views of the Capital [Kyoto]) includes at least 30 designs. The original wrapper for this series had a slightly different title: Miyako meisho shashin kagami (A Mirror of Famous Views of the Capital [Kyoto]— Truthfully Copied). It followed soon after the publication in 1856-58 of Utagawa Hiroshige's Meisho Edo hyakkei (One Hundred Famous Views of Edo).
