Lovely woodblock print "Hanagasa roji" (Red Umbrella in Alley) is by Teruhide Kato. Wonderful composition and stunning contrast. Published by Unsodo. Teruhide Kato had studied at Kyoto Art College. He was a famous kimono fashion designer. When he was 50 years old, he decided to follow his real passion and became a traditional Kyoto woodblock artist. Success remained with the artist.

Unfortunately, he passed away in 2015.
