Description
An old man stands beside a boundary stone, this is a directional marker that reads "Akashi - West" and "Suma - East" . He is wearing a grey priest's robe, string sandles (shinigami) and a large straw hat (sugegasa) pulled down over his eyes. Beside him are his two young pages in matching kimono, they carry large black hats. Behind them a large anchor lies on the seashore, whilst overhead flies a flock of plovers.
