Ōno Shinden in the Suruga Province
Suraga Province was an old province in the area that is today the central part of Shizuoka Prefecture.
The print depicts early morning in the marshy paddies of Ōno, with mist rising from the wet grasses while waterfowl skim the surface of the water. The Mount Fuji rises through the mist to the sky. Öno was situated on the northern shore of the Suraga Bay along the Eastern Sea Road (The Fifty-three Stations of the Tōkaidō) between the stations Hara-yuku (13th station, present day city of Numazu) and Yoshiwara (14th station, present day city of Fuji). “New Fields” (shinden) was a name commonly applied to areas first brought under cultivation during the Edo period.
