More about this print: The Hall of Thirty-Three Bays was under the jurisdiction of Eitaiji Temple, whose garden was the subject of the previous print.
This view from behind the elongated hall is a skillful expression of the use of the long rear veranda as an archery range. A shooting trial seems to be underway, with the contestants expected to shoot the arrows so that they stayed within the confines of the veranda, clearing the length of the building without hitting any part of it. Shooting speed was as important as accuracy.
