Ōmi is an area around Lake Biwa near Kyoto. The Shinto shrine Hiyoshi Taisha and the Buddhist temple Ishiyamadera are in the upper right and upper left of the composition, respectively. At center is the pilgrimage route, and people in the town before the temple gates. Harvested rice fields at right and cherry blossom trees in flower at left show seasonal change from winter to spring.
