The plethora of rivulets surging downwards in this illustration of Kirifuri Waterfall (on Kurokami Mountain in Shimotsuke) seem to mirror the branches of the surrounding trees which reach for the sky. Some travellers, one holding a hat emblazoned with the first character of the publisher's name (永), peer cautiously over the edge of a steep cliff at the cascading water below, while others in the foreground gaze upwards at the simultaneously magnificent and fearsome fall which rises above them.
