From the series Kyoto meisho no uchi (Famous views in Kyoto) published about 1835. Four geisha are seen in front of the stone torii of the Kanshin-in, a Shintô shrine in the Gion district of Kyoto (Gion was one of the town’s pleasure quarters). In some impressions of the first edition the rooves of the buildings are shaded grey at the top. This is a later impression without the publisher's name or censor's seal in the margin.
