Honjo Tatekawa, the timberyard at Honjo
Honjo was adjacent to Asakusa, where the Takekawa, a small river, flows east and west, joining the Sumida River just near Ryôgoku Bridge (Tokyo).
Honjo was famous for its many lumberyards on the riverbanks. On this side of the river, three men are busily stacking wood. A man on the left throws a bundle of wood to another man atop the stack. In the middle, a man saws a timber into planks. The Mount Fuji appears at the far right, behind the screens of the stacked poles.
