Kasamatsu depicts a Tōshō-gū Shrine in the Ueno park in Tokyo. The Shrine is a Shinto Shrine and is otherwise called Kiyomizudo, or the Ueno Temple. Tōshō-gū denotes that the temple is a Shinto shrine in which Tokugawa Ieyasu, the founder of the last shogunate of Japan, is enshrined with the name Tōshō Dai Gongen. The precincts of this temple are depicted in Ando Hiroshige's ukiyo-e work The Moon Pine.
