- Kibune no Kawadoko (Kibune in Summer, Kyoto) -

Masao Ido

5620

The superb woodblock print 'Kibune no Kawadoko' (Kibune in Summer, Kyoto) is by Masao Ido (1945–2016). This print is part of the twelve-month Kyoto series. This smaller-format print has a printed title and signature. The peaceful summer image of the famous Kawadoko in Kibune, Kyoto is captured in this print. It comes with an original presentation folder and the artist's comment for this print (only in Japanese).

Kawadoko is river dining in Kyoto only in the summer time. They are constructed directly on top of the rushing river water, shaded overhead by many trees. Kibune is a mountain town north of Kyoto. When we dine at Kawadoko, the wind is very cool and wild birds are singing. It is like another world away from the hot center of Kyoto. Personally, I love this summer tradition of Kyoto
