Katata no rakugan (Geese Descending at Katata), from Eight Views of Omi Province

The wide expanse of Lake Biwa is in the foreground. The boats of fishermen lead toward a village on the shore. More sailing boats and ranges of trees are visible in the distance, where imposing mountains rise. A flock of geese descend from the dark, cloudy sky, seeking the distant shore.
