Depicted is an autumnal landscape with several figures standing at the base of the Kegon waterfall. Kegon Falls is located at Lake Chūzenji (source of the Oshiri River) in Nikkō National Park near the city of Nikkō, Tochigi Prefecture. The main falls has a height of 318 ft and about twelve smaller waterfalls are situated behind and to the sides of Kegon Falls, flowing through the many cracks between the mountain and the lava flows. In 1927, Kegon Falls was recognized as one of the “Eight Views” which best showed Japan and its culture in the Shōwa period. The Kegon Falls are infamous for suicides, especially among Japanese youth.
