Yotsuya Araki Yokocho, 1935

Tsuchiya Koitsu - After moving to Tokyo at age fifteen, Koitsu studied for many years with the woodblock artist Kobayashi Kiyochika.

Comments - Beautiful image of two geisha at the entrance to a teahouse off a small lane in Yotsuya. Light spills from the open doorway, casting a rosy glow out on the street.
