The boat is probably the cargo vessel of the time, the Bezai boat. The sail has been folded, and the boat is anchored with a straw matting. Tagonoura was a port of the Edo era for Sengokubune (junk boats with capacity for one thousand koku of rice) of the Shogunate that came in and out from Kashima, a territory of the Shogunate. The shadow of the wooden bridge is beautiful. * A photo taken from the same angle is included in the book edited by Ozawa Kenji "The End of the Bakufu and Meiji in Pictures ", entitled "Mt.Fuji from Tagonoura 1880s Kinpei album "( p.67).
