Narazaki  (Hasui's biographer) writes: "This is the Daimotsu bay made famous in the Heikie monogatari (The tale of Heike) of the early Kamakura period (1185-1333). These days there are few opportunities for a traveler to experience this area as it once was since it is now part of the harbor district in the Hanshin industrial belt. For this reason Hasui's depiction is interesting." Amagasaki is situated in Hyogo prefecture.
