I researched this artist online and found out that H. Saito was a Western style watercolorist. This Japanese woodblock print is signed and sealed in lower left within the image and signed H. Saito in pencil on the lower right margin, it is dated in the left margin Showa 10 (1935), on the back of the print, lower left it is stamped with the publisher's information H. Takemura (Hideo Takemura active from 1926 to 1939), 16" x 10 3/4", very strong colors, full margins, deckled edges, and never framed, not toned. This is a beautiful night scene in the rain with bokashi (gradation of color).

Artist Bio: Nishimura Hodo is most likely the watercolour artist Saito Hodo. See my discussion of Saito Hodo here.
