The print title refers to a famous episode in the 11th-century literary classic, the Tales of Ise, in which the hero travels towards Mount Utsu along a narrow road overgrown with ivy. Here the line of foot travellers and the winding road draw the eye past a small tea hut towards the huge mountain at the back. The grain of the woodblock adds to the depiction of clouds and mist shrouding the mountain.
