About This Print

A small format print after Hiroshige's original depiction of a village at the foot of tree-covered slope as seen from across a river with two paulownia trees in the foreground.  

In this reproduction the title cartouches normally present in the upper right hand corner, as seen in an early edition of this print shown below, have been eliminated and less attention was given to closely duplicating Hiroshige's original design shown below.
