More about this print: Suwa Shrine was located just across the road from the rear entrance of the temple depicted in the previous print, right on the edge of the Suwa Bluff, to which it lent its name. From within the shrine precincts, a broad panorama opened to the northeast.
In the far distance are the silhouettes of two mountain groups that appear several times in this series. To the right is the twin-peaked Mount Tsukuba, which appears eleven times in the series, the western Male Peak usually shown higher than the Female Peak even though it is actually twenty feet lower
