Date 1916
Publisher S. Watanabe Color Print Co.
Reference No Folk #79
Size 14 -1/2 x 6 -1/2 "
Condition Very fine, with superb colors.

Notes: Exceedingly rare pre-quake design in near mint state. This early 1916 edition has a more painterly effect, compared to the flatness of the post-quake impression.

There are numerous changes in the design from the pre/post-quake examples, including the shape of the hillside, footprints in the snow, placement of the crows in the sky, and falling snow (gofun was only added in the first edition).
