Notes (this edition)?The following information was taken from the original web listing of this artwork. Often written by non-experts, there may be inaccuracies:

Yasaka no To (The Pagoda at Yasaka) from the series Kyoraku Nesho (Famous scenes in Kyoto) by Nomura Yoshimitsu. Original woodblock print circa 1931. Same print displayed in the 1936 Toledo Exhibition. The ten artists shown at the exhibition are: Hakuho, Hasui, Kobayakawa, Kotondo, Shinsui, Shiro Kasamatsu, Shoson, Shunsen, Hiroshi Yoshida, and Yoshimitsu. Print is in very good condition. A little tape residue in upper corners. One small spot in sky. Limited edition Numbered 162/200 on verso. (See verso image which reads: Ni Hyaku Ban Kagiri Zeppan Dai Hayaku Rokuju ni Go.) Japanese title and Sato of Kyoto publisher's seal in right margin. Yoshimitsu characters and red Sankokai-in seal in upper right of image. 18 blocks used with 25 superimposed impressions. Compare with image 286 in the 1936 Toledo Exhibition Catalog. Rare and beautiful.

Series Information: Published on the 5th of March, 1930, as a series of six prints in a limited edition of two hundred sets by Sato Shotaro. The series was sold as a set of all six scenes in a cardboard tatou folder containing the series and print titles, dating (March 5, 1930) and publisher information. Interestingly, there are also two extra scenes containing the series title that were not included in the series set: The Daimonji Festival, and The Sloping Path to Kiyomizu, so perhaps they were issued after the release of the six-print set.
