More about this print: In the rainy summer months, the Otonashi River plunged from a projecting bluff of the Musashi Plain in dozens of small cascades. Some of these came to be singled out as the "Seven Falls of Ōji," with the Fūdo Falls as the best known of the seven for its religious, curative, and scenic allure.
The two bathing men partake of the spring's healing powers. One man gingerly tests the water, while another at shoreside reaches for a cup of hot tea from an old woman.
Pictures: Pictures are taken outdoor, in the shade, to reflect true colors, without any enhancements of any kind. The last picture is taken indoor, with a light behind the print, to reveal the exact paper grain, holes if any, or other possible flaws.
