Impression Very Fine. Nicely executed "bokashi" shading; light "gauffrage" to tree, curtains, and building; nicely over-printed streaks of falling rain; highly detailed carving.
Condition Very Good to Nearly Excellent.
Strong, unfaded colors. Clean front and verso. (Light toning; few surface scratches; thinning to edges wide left margins--found still side-tipped into original "presentation folder.")

Comments A classic Tokuriki image--this is the "western clothing" version (note the attire of the two seated customers) of a small streetside noodle restaurant.
