Sketch (Landscape) 4 sheets set (Mt. Purple)

Mochou Lake

Upper left: Nanjing’s Zhongshan Mausoleum (Nanjing is another name for Sun Yat-sen and no one knows it as a pioneer of the Chinese democratic revolution) is Sun Yat-sen’s mausoleum. It is stated that “there were occasional gunshots,” but it is probable that artillery units were practicing near that time. The tomb is on the side of a mountain called Shikinzan.
Upper right: The first Mochou Lake came out, and below that is the water west gate (one of the castle gates on the wall) and Xuanwu Lake.
Bottom right: Mochou Lake appears again, and unfortunately the small letters cannot be identified, but below that is the Chinese Gate, followed by the outside and inside of the castle (inside and outside the castle wall).
Lower left: Ming dynasty building near the Reiya Tower, called Ming dynasty because no beams or girders are used. The mountain in the background is Mt. Purple Gold.
