Series; Twelve Scenes of Tokyo

Komagata Embankment, 1919 - Intriguing view of a bamboo yard in Tokyo alongside the Komagata River. A worker dozes in his wagon in the heat of the summer day in the hot sunshine, while the wedge of blue water and sky in the distance provides a cooling contrast. Of this scene, Hasui wrote:

This is from a sketch that I made one summer afternoon in the front of a bamboo shop at the Komagata river-bank in Asakusa. One is able to see the other side of the river through the bamboo stalks, which are stacked side by side, in the shape of a half-opened fan. I thought the mood conveyed by the horse standing listlessly and the drayman slumbering on his dray was very summer-like.
