Inscribed by the artist on the album page, as title, but without any suggestion of where the coastal location may be. Colleagues in the Museum of Maritime Science, Tokyo, have kindly identified the principal vessel, lying at anchor, as a 'bezaisen' of about 150 tons: while smaller ones were used for local voyages (see PJ2093), this size was a long-distance trader typical of Osaka and Kyoto region at this period. Another similar vessel in the distance has sail raised, but is making little headway in what appears calm, overcast weather.
