Toyohiro did not make as many prints as paintings. These two prints, the rightmost of a set of five, illustrate a group of women paying homage at Myōhōji temple, which is dedicated to the founder of the Nichiren sect. Toyohiro portrayed the elegant women against a backdrop of the Myōhōji temple precinct rendered in Western perspective (uki-e).
