Sakurada Gate (Sakuradamon)
Date: 1928
Rare light blue version. Narazaki noted “Even today, the area around the Sakurada Gate is a place of picturesque beauty in Tokyo...” A single light serves as a beacon, its reflection shimmering in the blue water. Dusk is beautifully evoked, with the last light of the sun fading into the sky. Narazaki has this work listed separately from the other version with stronger colors and lacks the hanging willow branches.
