Notes: The serenity of mood and flawless composition in Hasui's work is perfectly translated in this 1930s snow composition. Narazaki describes this setting, 'Situated in a cypress forest, the vermilion five-storied pagoda provides a fitting subject matter for the silver-white snowscape design'.

The pagoda at Saisho-in temple was built around 350 years ago to commemorate those who died in battle during the reunification of the Tsugaru district in which Hirosaki is located. It's five stories high and stands just over 31 meters tall and is said to be the most beautiful of its kind in Tohoku.
