'Taisha: Misty Morning'  This lovely woodblock print depicts women bringing offerings to the great shrine in Izumo. Hotohoto was a festival on the 14th day of the first month and children went around receiving rice cakes or small amounts of money. This rather ethereal print is considered one of the best designs from the series “Famous Places in the Sixty-Odd Provinces.” The series published by Koshimuraya Heisuke between 1853-1856 ( this being 12/1853 ). Izumo is the oldest shrine in Japan in the far south-east of Honshu. The colorful foreground figures contrast with the silhouettes of others and cryptomeria trees receding into the mist.  This later edition dates to c1940.  It is in wonderful condition with gorgeous color.
