View of Seta River from Tsukimi-tei at Ishiyamadera Temple. During the Heian Period, aristocratic women worshipped at the temple, and in later years it attracted many commoners as the 13th temple in the circuit of 33 Holy Kannon Temples of Western Japan. One of the "Eight Scenes of Oumi," it was referred to as Ishiyama-no-Shugetsu (Autumn Moon at Ishiyama Temple). This image appears on postcards and in various photographs.
