Fine impression and colour, with karazuri and burnishing of the black; retains original Japanese album backing.

Another similar impression of the print is at the Theater Museum in the Waseda University number 201-2369.
Another one is published in Stevenson (2001), no. 76.

The print depicts a young samurai in the Shinobugaoka area of Edo (now Ueno Park in northeastern Tokyo) during the period of the flowering of cherry trees. The young man is under a rain of cherry blossoms. The beauty of the blossoms was considered to be particularly delicate and evocative when seen in moonlight.
