From the leading group of the procession illustrated across the Nihonbashi Bridge, it is suggested the scene illustrated is the procession of samurai moving toward the viewer. The picture captures the lively bustle of city with the illustrations of various people such as fish peddlers passing by the bridge quickly and curious onlookers watching the procession.
