This is a old-fashioned cargo boat, or Bezai boat. The sail has been folded, and the boat is anchored. Tagonoura was a port where boats used to come and go during the Edo period with rice from the Bakufu territory of Kashima. The wooden bridge casts a beautiful shadow on the surface of the water. * A photo taken from the same angle entitled "Fuji from Tagonoura 1880s Kinpei Album" is included in the "End of the Bakufu Era and Meiji in Photos" edited by Ozawa Kenji (p.67).
