Hira must behold it after the snows have fallen and before the

flowers are fully blown.

Eight Views of Ômi: #2 Night Rain at Karasaki

Andô Hiroshige

Vertical lines stream downward across the print indicate torrents of rain. The dark color pallette and black strip across the top indicate that the image is set at night. A giant tree on an island looms over the image, surrounded by water. A poem in the upper left corner reads:

"Elsewhere will they talk of the music of the evening breeze

that has made the pine of Karasaki famous; the voice of the

wind is not heard through the sound of the rain in the night."
