Review — One of HAMAYA Hiroshi's now well-known master works (with Yukiguni in 1956). It depicts remote places and lifestyles along the coast of the Sea of Japan. Powerful images, some verging on abstraction, served by excellent printing on fine paper. Much less common than Yukiguni and better-crafted.
