Original Kunichika (1835 - 1900) Japanese Woodblock Print
Beauties Strolling along Kasumigaseki
Comments - Charming scene of beauties strolling along the street in Kasumigaseki. Three women carrying umbrellas are followed by a maid carried a cloth-wrapped bundle, the beauties smiling as they look up. At right, a mother and a young boy make walk up the hill in the opposite direction. The road is lined with daimyo's mansions behind walls decorated with an embossed diamond pattern. The snow-covered peak of Mt. Fuji can be seen in the distance at top center, a line of geese in flies through the sky. An attractive design, beautifully detailed with embossing on the white kimono trim.
