Description: The Tama River ran along the western border of Edo, while the Sumida River flowed through the east side of the city. The Tama tended to evoke poetic associations, such as with the desolate Musashino moor and the autumnal moon.

The poem reads: "I shall never get tired of looking at the moon tonight; the mountains are bound together under the brilliant moonlight."

A striking image from Hiroshige's Edo kinko hakkei ("Eight Views of the Suburbs of Edo") series.

A post-war reproduction from the O-Edo Mokuhan-sha Company.

This print has two pinholes, uneven color, and a few slight foxing spots. Also, there are a few traces of glue removal on the backside.
