Snow at Hakone Shrine (Hakone jinja yuki). Two figures approach the torii that demarcates the entrance to Hakone Shrine. The feeling is very subtle, peaceful and quiet, the colors muted. The inscription above the signature begins “1st Month”, but the rest is unread.
Condition: Very good impression, color and condition. Center fold and some glue remnants verso.
