This print is from a limited edition series entitled "Views Of Japan" of famous shin-hanga landscape masterworks from the artists Hasui and Koitsu, printed by the publisher Hamamatsu-Do (Doi), and distributed by O-Edo Mokuhansha. In the early 1960's Hamamatsu-Do re-released this fine limited edition set of shin-hanga landscape prints. 28 scenes were chosen and the publisher printed 200 complete sets of 28 prints each. This print has a very rare edition number, 8/200, in the left margin. I am not 100% sure that this editioning is authentic, however, I do have about eight other scenes from this series with similar editioning.
