Ukiyoe Edo fan paintings (nishikie, Yamato-type) were produced by the publisher Ibasen as multicolor printed fan paintings (uchiwa-e) by Hiroshige and Kuniyoshi, master artists of the Utagawa school. Ibasen printed and produced this work based on this only existing woodblock print.

Two geisha walk through the snowy town of Naka. The everlasting lamp of Akiba Gongen, which was enshrined at the waterworks, is depicted prominently in the foreground, and the gate on the opposite side is depicted in Ukiyoe through the use of perspective. It can be seen that Hiroshige had mastered the Western perspective painting method.
