$215.00

Hasui’s stunning image of the Toshogu Shrine rising behind the cherry blossoms in full bloom. The crescent moon is visible in the blue night sky. The ancient tradition of cherry blossom viewing is still a passion in Japan. Toshogu Shrine is dedicated to Tokugawa Ieyasu, the founder of the Tokugawa shogunate. It was initially built in 1617, during the Edo period, while Ieyasu’s son Hidetada was shōgun. The original five-storey pagoda on the shrine site was donated by a daimyō. It burned down during a fire in 1650, and was rebuilt in 1818. Each storey represents an element – earth, water, fire, wind and aether (or void)–in ascending order.

Print has been trimmed to fit the frame and margins are gone although writing in the margins was preserved on back of frame.
