"Autumn Moon at Tamachi" echoes "Autumn Moon over Lake Dongting." This print contains the publisher's seal only of Echizen-ya Heisaburô. The script near the roof-beam of the red shrine names the building as the Hachiman Shrine, also known as Samezu Jinja or "Shark's Head Shrine" for the statue of the sacred Buddhist deity Kannon that a founding legend of Edo claims fishermen found in the belly of a shark pulled from the bay near this spot. The light of the harvest moon in this lovely autumn night view makes the city rooftops appear to glow whitely below the shrine to Hachiman, the god of war and one of the important cult deities of the Tokugawa house.
