by Nisaburo Ito (1910 - 1988)
Comments - Interesting evening view of Arima Hot Spring, a well-known town within Kobe, located behind Mt. Rokko. A man walks down the center of the street as a beauty stands in the open doorway at left, light spilling onto the ground. A few yellow lamps, a red paper lantern, and a sign with red lighting add notes of color to the subdued night scene rendered in tones of gray beneath a dark blue sky. A rarely seen subject by Nisaburo Ito, published by Uchida on watermarked paper with publisher's seal in the lower left margin. The first time we've come across this attractive modern design.
