AAUM-UMMA event materials

View of an interior of an inn, with tatami-matted rooms and sliding doors. The rooms have doors open. Men and women wearing yukata are resting in one of the rooms. The other room seems to be a public bathroom, with one man taking a bath in the deep soaking tubs, and the other sitting on the stool to put on his clothes.

There is a river flowing through the center of the painting, running down the landscape and toward the viewer. There is a figure sitting on a gnarled tree-raft towards the bottom left of the painting, with another figure looking upon the scene from the opposite bank of the river. There are ornate buildings present toward the top of the panting. The viewer can see a lone figure in an interior covered by stylized clouds.
