Kuroda celebrated the new year of 1897 at Ohara in present-day Chiba prefecture with his friend Kume Kei’ichiro (1866-1934) and others. According to a letter addressed to Nakamura Katsujiro (1866−1922), who was Kuroda’s friend from the Hakubakai artists’ group, Kuroda became interested in this area’s customs and painted 12 or 13 views of its seashore. This work is most likely one of these views, and was exhibited at the 2nd Hakubakai Exhibition.
