The Fifth Month

Series; Annual Events and Customs of Edo

The Fifth Month - Lovely design of a beauty strolling through an iris garden during the fifth month. She smiles happily as she admires the delicate lavender blossoms among slender green leaves. Her golden yellow kimono has a subtle striped design, tied with a colorful obi patterned with rabbit motifs. The background features pine trees in silhouette atop a softly shaded hillside, the sky darkening as evening begins to fall. A beautiful image with wonderful fine line work and shading, and delicate embossing in the white kimono collar. A subject rarely seen in reprint, published in 1977 by Sodosha in Tokyo.
