The temple represented is Sōfukuji, the construction of which was completed in 1635.


The foreground of Saitō Kiyoshi's print captures the elaborately carved wood railing of the Ming dynasty–style architecture of a Buddhist temple in Nagasaki. The temple was established by Chaonian (1567–1644), a monk from Fuzhou in China's Fujian province, to serve the diasporic community from Fuzhou.
