This landscape scene shows a waterfall between a mountainous landscape with cherry blossom trees in full bloom both above and below. It is set within a gold-coloured floral motif border, with three rows of Japanese text situated at the top left corner. The mountains are given structure by thick black lines and the trees are intricately drawn showing the pink blossom.
