川口のわたし善光寺 Kawaguchi no watashi Zenkōji

A019

The Kawaguchi Ferry and Zenkōji temple, Arakawa river.

A year after Hiroshige designed the print, the Buddha in the Amida Hall at the top was due to be exhibited publicly for the first time in 13 years; in a pun Hiroshige covered the hall of this “secret Buddha” with the title cartouche.
