Ikaho no natsu. Hasui's own notes state, "One lasting impression for anyone holidaying in Ikaho would be the mountain range visible through the trees...The mountains are covered in a light mist, and the quietly moving clouds make it look as if the day is drawing to a close. The thicket of trees is distinguished by its silhouetted form, with both tree trunks and tree tops having become dark shadows." Scarce, pre-earthquake design in the rare nagaban format.
