Comments Considered by many to be Hiroshige’s finest and most dramatic series. Faithfully re-printed using colors to emulate Hiroshige’s earlier prints with much attention to detail. This wonderful snow scene is a Hiroshige masterwork--with its small temple perched dramatically at the edge of a cliff. Nice condition.
