Title: Morning Fuji from Lake Kawaguchi

Closeup of Mount Fuji in the early  morning light, with the shoreline reflected foreground in the calm waters of Lake Kawaguchi. This lake is located in the town of Fujiakawaguchiko and is the second largest of the Fuji Five Lakes. A single sailboat may be seen plying the waters in the distance. A pleasing design in mint condition, the printing on this work is very nicely textured for a work by this artist. The seal at left reads Doi Hangaten, which indicates that this work was printed shortly after WWII, probably around 1950. With the Doi watermark in paper, upper left corner. 

With the seals of carver Harada and printer Yokoi.
