Saga no Machiya (Along Street of Saga)

Katsuyuki Nishijima


Beautiful woodblock print "Saga no Machiya" (Along Street of Saga) is by Katsuyuki Nishijima. These are umbrellas lined up outside a thatched roof house in Saga, Kyoto. Nishijima's older limited edition umbrella prints are becoming scarce and difficult to find now. This is one of his most colorful and romantic.
