Notes:After a hiatus of many decades Watanabe Shoichiro has recently republished Kawase Hasui's most iconic and sort-after scene, "The Zojoji Temple". Republished in a small edition size of only 100, the entire February 2018 edition was sold out in only five days. This print is from the May 2018 2nd edition, from which I was only able to obtain three copies. The market for this scene is such that this recent edition has sold here in Japan, at auction, for over $3,000 (see here for a list of auction results). Pre-war strikes in fine condition sell for up to $15,000, and even those in only 'fair to good' condition can sell for over $5,000.

This edition has Watanabe Shoichiro's publisher seal in the light margin and a 7mm publisher seal at the lower right corner of the printed area. In perfect condition.
