Impression Excellent. Skillfully executed "bokashi" shading to upper/lower sky, buildings, snow and water areas, and title cartouche; over-splashed with "gofun" pigment as falling snow; nicely visible woodgrain to sky; highly detailed carving.
Condition Nearly Excellent. Fresh, strong colors. (Light toning, slight wear, few minor spots.) Retains original album backing.
Reference/Illus "Hiroshige--Brooklyn Museum" pl#112.
Comments A very fine printing from the 1891 "Memorial Edition," with much attention to detail. Exceptional condition due to having been preserved inside an album.
