'Toshogu Shrine'

This original woodblock print depicts Toshogu Shrine in Nikko.  'Toshogu' is any Shinto Shrine in which Tokugawa Ieyasu, the founder of the last Shogunate of Japan, is enshrined with the name Tosho Daigongen.  Toshogu shrines are found throughout Japan.  The most famous is this one, located in Nikko, in Tochigi Prefecture.   This woodblock depicts a pleasant scene, with giant Cryptomeria conifers flanking the sides of the shrine entrance, and several visitors at the steps of the shrine.  These large trees line the way to Nikko from the Sacred Bridge to the Toshogu Shrine and beyond.   It bears Yoshida's Kanji cipher, along with its Japanese and English title and Yoshida's signature in pencil.  The first edition was produced in 1937.  This later edition dates to the 1940s.  This print has some fading of color, and some old repairs on the backside.  P80024
