Notes: Narazaki writes: 'Watanabe Tadasu reportedly accompanied Hasui when he went to sketch this scene. The movement of the two children as they chase after a cicada adds interest to the composition. It was sketched on July 4th 1932 and produced on August 8th that same year'. - Hotei Vol. 1; pg. 93
A rarely seen design from the 1930s.
