This hanging scroll depicts a man walking along a mountainous path overlooking a group of buildings and distant mountains. In the foreground, the figure moves to the left, and is placed before a large tree growing out of the rocks. The middle of the painting is dominated by a diagonal line created by the roofs of various structures leading to three larger mountain peaks, indicated with light gray washes.

This landscape shows a brown, black, and white line drawing of a road and the buildings along it at night. There are two rows of buildings that face each other, and a road separating them. One of the buildings in the foreground has two billboards above it, illuminated at their top edges and spilling light onto the road around them. The area behind the row of buildings in the background is very dark, and the artist's signature is in the top left corner of the paper. A vehicle with bright headlights drives down the center of the road between the buildings, towards the right.
