Zojoji Temple, Shiba, in the Snow. An excellent example of a design from this important series that bridges the work of Hiroshige and Hasui. With traces of mica applied in the sky. Note that the tree has just loosed some snow from its boughs, and that the lovely pedestrian is perhaps about to have it land on her head.
