The scroll depicts a panoramic landscape rendered in soft colors, with refined brushstrokes. Green rolling hills rise from the foreground. On the right, a small house is partially obscured by pine and cherry trees. In the distance, ribbons of mist traverse in-between mountain peaks, defined by ink washes and embellished with clusters of green trees and pink cherry blossoms.
