Notes: A rare, seldom seen Koitsu from the little-known publisher Takemura. This impression displays slight differences in color and use of blocks then the example shown in The Catalog Raisonne; with the most obvious being the inclusion of the translucent paper screen frame in the shoji doors to the lower right. This version also has a variety of unqiue differences in the bokashi shading in the sky. The tip of Mt. Fuji has an additional pink hue, providing the mood of a setting sun, rather then a simple evening scene.

The Takemura Publishing Co., was a small-scale publisher based mainly in Yokohama area. Apparently, Takemura published about one new Koitsu print each month from early 1935 until early 1937. Due to their rarity, previously undocumented designs are still being discovered.
