Ferry Boats on the Fuji River in Suruga Province
Series; Famous Places in Our Country
Fine printing from the respected Tokyo publisher Oedo Mokuhansha - These classic designs were produced by the well known Tokyo publisher Oedo Mokuhansha amidst a resurgence of interest in ukiyo-e. Like many of these traditional businesses, the woodblock print craft was passed down through generations, and the Oedo Mokuhansha company was formed by descendents of an Edo era publisher. These are nice prints of the highest quality standards and an excellent choice if you are looking for fine old woodblock reprints.
Ferry Boats on the Fuji River in Suruga Province - Handsome view of ferry boats on the Fuji River in Suruga Province with the majestic peak of Mt. Fuji rising in the background. Two boats laden with passengers make their way across the river as other people wait on shore next to the dock for the next trip. An attractive landscape subject with soft bokashi shading in the water and sky, rarely seen in reprint.
