Maruko boats on Lake Biwa. This photograph seems to imitate the image Yabase-no-Kihan, one of Utagawa Hiroshige's "Eight Scenes of Oumi" and a representative ukiyoe print. "Yabase-no-Kihan" captures the scene of the boats used to ferry passengers between Otsu and Yabase (present-day Kusatsu City), returning to port. This was a shortcut on the Tokaido Highway.
