More about this print: In this view of the Shakujii River as it passes through the Oji district, the patches of orange reflect the famous autumnal display of maple trees in the area. The Takinogawa of the title, meaning "Waterfall River," is an appropriate name for the river at this point, which was known for its Seven Falls
