A boat navigates the Tama (Jewel) River as orange mist rises beneath the peak of Mount Fuji. This somewhat later edition shows stronger color, more contrast and black outlines, which completely changes the feeling of the print. This print always lacks a publisher’s mark.
Condition: Good impression, very good color and condition. Black outline. Center fold.
