Ama no Hashidate in Rain and Lightning (Hashidate uchû kaminari), from an untitled series of landscapes

Start collecting

Robinson suggests a date of ca. 1840 for the series; but Levine and Harkins state that the design is one of an album of eight landscapes, published by Wakita in Osaka around the turn of the twentieth century, after original designes by Kuniyoshi.
