Ejiri: Tago Bay and Miho no Matsubara

Tago Bay and the pine grove at Miho were among the most famous scenic spots on the Tōkaidō. Here Hiroshige shows fishing boats and nets drying on the shore in the foreground, while larger boats sail along the Okitsu River behind them. Hiroshige has included elements of Western perspective in this print, notably in the way that the boats decrease in size towards the horizon.
