The boat is probably the cargo boat of the time, the Bezai boat. The sail has been folded, and the boat is anchored and covered with a straw mat. Tagonoura was a port of the Edo era where sengokubune (junks with a capacity for a thousand koku of rice) came in and out from Kashima, a territory of the Shogunate. The shadow of the wooden bridge is beautiful. * A photo from the same angle is 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. The only difference with (7) is the angle.
