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.

Around the exterior of the building are two trees, a lamppost, four bollards, and a person seen in silhouette. A light source outside the image illuminates part of the church’s large arched window, and casts long shadows that fall to the left side of the composition. <br />

Near dusk, a woman in a kimono walks outside a Japanese style building with a shoji screen for a wall. The silhouettes of merry-makers inside can be seen, revealing the figure of a man and also a woman, probably a geisha, holding an instrument that appears to be a shamisen.

In the lower right corner of the image, the head of a man with dark hair and a mustache is seen from the back. He sits in an armchair, gazing up at a raven perched on the helmeted head of a white classical bust. The bust is placed atop the frame of a simplified door. A mass of quickly-drawn black slashes surround the raven, stretch down diagonally from the door frame into the space of the seated man.<br />
