“Hakubamura no naetashiro”. The newly planted rice field in Hakuba village at the foot of Mt. Hakuba.   Hakuba is part of Nagano Prefecture in the Chubu district of Japan. The name Hakuba means white horse and was derived by horse-shaped snow on the mountain side during spring time.  For hundreds of years, traders would pass by Hakuba as they followed the famous Salt Road from the Japan Sea to Matsumoto and they would stop in the Hakuba valley overnight to rest.  Today, Mt Hakuba is known for backpacking, skiing, and snowboarding.

The impression is self-carved and self-printed by the artist using 11 blocks and 29 colors. There are slight creases, printer’s creases, and minor ink stains on the margins.
