|Notes:||Dated 1883 (Meiji 16), this print has very little Japanese text so I do not know much about it, however it depicts the Emperor Meiji visiting an establishment that produces silk. In the background at left is a portrait of the silk Deity Kinugasa 「絹笠大明神（きぬがさだいみょうじん）」. This is a spring scene, as witnessed by the blossoming cherry trees outside.
Untrimmed, full image including full margins, unblacked, separate sheets, each 37 x 25cm.
