One can also see what looks like a jinriksha driver heading in this direction as well. Masterfully evocative in tones of black and grey, there are no outlines at all in this design. It is worth noting that the absence of the series title in the work can sometimes indicate a very early impression, as here. Bearing the earliest Watanabe seal for this work.
