Hasui wrote the following commentary on this design: “This is from a sketch that I made one summer afternoon in the front of a bamboo shop at the Komagata Riverbank in Asakusa...I thought the mood conveyed by the horse standing listlessly and the drayman slumbering on his dray was very summer-like”. From the series “12 Scenes of Tokyo”. Considered Hasui’s finest summer scene.
