Comments - Great Hiroshige fan print depicting a traveler on horseback crossing a river during a rain storm. The man is hidden beneath a straw covering, only his feet visible, as the rain falls straight down, sending up white splashes as it hits the water and ground. A charming, somewhat comic image, wonderfully detailed. Seldom seen in reprint.
