This print shows a couple dressed in typical Japanese summer garb (yukata) taking a walk on the beach during a summer night with their dog. On a far-away island, as well as further down the shoreline, clusters of houses are illuminated. A full moon hangs low in the sky. The watercolour-esque quality of this image, as well as the beautifully rendered reflection of moonlight in the water, are Hasui's specialities. 

During Japanese summers, daytime is typically incredibly hot and humid, whereas nighttime brings the relief of cooler air and the bustle of activity. The scene depicted within this print manages to capture the essence of Japanese summer and invokes a sense of nostalgia, showcasing Hasui's talent of infusing a print with a certain atmosphere.
