Wonderful woodblock print "Shiba Zojoji" (Snow at Zojoji Temple, Shiba) is by Hasui Kawase (1883-1957). First printed in Taisho 14 (1925), originally by Watanabe publisher; however, this is a later recarved print by Sakai Koko-do. Please note, this version was republished by Sakai Koko-do in 2012. The pre-war original print by Watanabe publisher is quite expensive on the market now, so if someone wants to enjoy Hasui's famous print casually, it would be great to own it at a reasonable price. This is a genuine Japanese handmade woodblock print and is of very good quality. Please see the pictures.
