Located in the northern part of what is now Meguro Ward, this picture depicts the area surrounding Komabano, a wide plain that stretched from Yoyogino. In Edo times, the area boasted large populations of larks, quails, pheasants and rabbits, and from the Kyōhō era (1716-1736), 495,000㎡of land (some 150,000 tsubo in Japanese) was used for falconry by the shogunate, with a herb garden also being established in the area.
