At Sumiyoshi seashore
It is on the ebb tide and the sea is far
A fish boat floats
Beacons stand in the sea of Sumiyoshi
They are where we rely on in the floating world
The same day in Naniwa (Osaka), see Sakura flowers at Konryūji-temple.
The cloud of flowers (Sakura)
Even the sound of bell remains
Iriai-Zakura flowers turn into green
