Breathtaking woodblock print "Gion, Yozakura" (Cherry Blossoms at Night in Gion, Kyoto) is by Tomikichiro Tokuriki (1902-2000). Very large size print. Wonderful night image of Gion with cherry blossoms and hazy moon. This is a rare and special print with a handwritten famous poem. Translation of the poem is "On the way to Kiyomizu, the cherry blossoms at Gion is illuminated by the moonlight, and everyone I see tonight is all so beautiful." This is a very famous Japanese poem by Akiko Yosano (1878-1942). We can feel the artist's appreciation for the beauty of nature.
