Description: This print is from the set 'Kacho Fugetsu (Beauties of Nature)' which consists of 20 Hiroshige design prints in ōtanzaku format published by Yuyudo in the 1970s, produced by the best engravers and printers at that time.

The poem means, "In the dawn of a quiet village in autumn, I heard a wild monkey's voice, which echoed through the deep mountain gorge." On the contrary, this print depicts a disgruntled monkey who is tied up with strings and deprived of his freedom. It's an interesting contrast between the monkey's appearance and the graceful landscape of falling cherry blossoms.
