It is 4 km from Shimada to Kanaya after crossing the Oi River. Hiroshige illustrates the crossing of the Oi River from the Kanaya side. The picture of Shimada only illustrates the river; however, this picture shows the mountains far beyond the shore from the other side. The mountain in the far front that has a peculiar shape actually does not exist: it could come from Hiroshige’s imagination. This picture also depicts the crossing in detail, and the selection of colors is excellent. The gray tone of this fictional mountain maintains the balance of the entire screen.
