- Mii-dera (Mii Temple in Spring) -

Masao Ido


The breathtaking woodblock print `Mii-dera` (Mii Temple in Spring) is by Masao Ido (1945–2016). Printed in 1991, this superb spring image is full of cherry blossoms, adding a gentle and serene mood to the beautiful print. The petals appear to be gently falling in the spring breeze, creating a sense of delicacy and grace.

Mii-dera is located at the foot of Mt. Hiei in the city of Ōtsu in Shiga Prefecture. This temple, famous as a cherry blossom viewing spot, is my favorite spot.
