Music Inspired by
#039 Distant View of Kinryūzan Temple and the Azuma Bridge
from Hiroshige's 100 Famous Views of Edo
歌川広重「江戸名所百景 夏の部  第39景 吾妻橋金龍山遠望
and
Giuseppe De Francesco's Tokyo Hyaku

The boat is a "roof boat" with a bamboo screen for merchants, and the woman accompanying her seems to be a geisha or a prostitute from Yoshiwara. The painting beautifully depicts the Hanami (cherry blossom viewing) of wealthy Edo merchants, along with the five-story pagoda in Asakusa and Mt.

船はすだれ仕様の「屋根舟」と呼ばれる商人のためのもので、同伴の女性は芸者もしくは吉原の遊女と思われる。江戸町人の富裕層の花見道楽を浅草五重塔や富士山とともに美しく描いている。
