Tsuchiya Koitsu - After moving to Tokyo at age fifteen, Koitsu studied for many years with the woodblock artist Kobayashi Kiyochika.

Five-story Pagoda at Nikko, 1936 - Beautiful winter scene of the towering five-story pagoda at Nikko during a snowfall.

A wonderful design with soft bokashi shading.
