Description — Color woodcut print on cream-colored hand-crafted paper (38 x 25.5 cm), artist's stamp in lower-right corner.

Condition — Good (back/reverse: browning in the center, that appears lightly on the obverse).

Review — A fine view of / from Mt. Rokko (Kobe, Hyogo pref.) into Kobe harbor, Osaka Bay and Awaji Island by the illustrator and print maker HATA Tsuneharu (1883-1944). While Mt. Rokko and the water are left almost colorless (light outline in light brown around the mountain) and the sky marked by a light white fading cloud (visible thanks to a printing done on cream-colored paper), it is the harbor, shores, moutains, island and horizon in the distance that inherit of the deep blue of the ocean: truly brilliant!

Misc. — This print is present in the collection of the Carnegie Museum of Art.
