12. Sunset across the Ryōgoku Bridge from the bank of the Sumida River at Onmayagashi

 

The ukiyo-e woodblock printing silhouettes the figure of Mt. Fuji wrapped in the orange light of the setting sun.

 

The dusk is falling from the upper sky and the far buildings and boarts also turn into the gray shadows.

 

Even though the breathtakingly beautiful landscape, most of the people in the picture don’t see it.

 

The place was famous for the ferry landing where the nice view of Mt. Fuji could have be seen.
