The Thirty-three Saigoku Kannon Pilgrimage - Handsome design from Hiromitsu Nakazawa's series depicting the Saigoku Pilgrimage route through western Japan, which includes 33 temples that are dedicated to Kannon, the Buddhist goddess of mercy. Along with the 33 official temples on the route, the series includes additional related subjects. Each temple is associated with a miracle performed by Kannon. The scenes include landscapes and interior views of temples, as well as pilgrims making their way along the route or visiting the shrines. Each is rendered in a very painterly style, with soft muted colors contrasting with lively calligraphic line work. Woodblock prints of travel or tour sketches became popular in the early 20th century. Published by Bun'endo of Kyoto, these beautifully printed designs are from the 1925 first edition. An interesting and seldom seen modern Japanese print series.
