Description: (This print is attributed at least to the collaboration of Shigenobu, later Hiroshige II.) The title tells us that this is the area known as Yamashita (Below the Mountain), the broad open space extending from the southern approach. To the lower left is a precisely aligned procession of parasoled ladies-in-waiting to a daimyo. Stopping to gaze at them is a group of commoners, strangely and somewhat awkwardly diminished in size.
