Tinted lithograph depicting a Japanese junk, in side view, sailing on a somewhat choppy sea. In the background is a rocky coast, with Mount Fuji at far right; two other ships are seen at right. The junk in the foreground has a single mast and sail, and flies a flag with a white diamond enclosed by a white circle, all on a dark ground.
