Artist: Ando Hiroshige (1797–1858)

The sheet shows a section of the garden compound of the Tenjin (also Tenman) shrine in Makeido. Hiroshige focuses the view of the observer onto the beautiful sights in the area: the wisteria and a finely formed drum bridge.
There were two drum bridges in this garden, a smaller and a larger. The smaller was of stone and was seen as “feminine”. The larger was of wood and regarded as “masculine”.
