Numazu is 6 km away from Mishima. In his image of Mishima, Hiroshige illustrated the melancholy of an early morning, and here he depicts sentimentalism at sunset. The scene is of a narrow road along the Kise River. It shows the loneliness that comes with straying from the route: this setting represents Hiroshige’s fundamental theme, sentimentalism. A full moon rises in the deep blue evening sky. Under the clear moonlight, we can see a pilgrim mother and child dragging their feet to their inn for the night, and a holy man. These figures invite us to feel melancholy. This work, illustrating the sadness and misery in people’s hearts, is one of the works most important to understanding Hiroshige’s art. Among the fifty-five Hoei-do prints, this is the only work illustrating the moon. The effect makes this work one of the best among his paintings.
