Kawachi Province, Mount Otoko in Hirakata - Lovely scene of the Yodo River flowing past Hirakata, boatmen poling their craft along the blue waters. Mount Otoko, from which the Yodo River flows, rises above the mists in the background.

Woodblock reprints - In the 20th century, artists and publishers collaborated to recreate famous woodblock prints for interested Japanese collectors and Westerners looking for rare designs. New blocks were made, and the prints were painstakingly printed by artisan printers in the same method as the 19th century originals - one block for each color. Woodblock reprints were an opportunity to collect and enjoy a famous design at a small fraction of the price of an original. They still are today.
