Lake Kussharo, Hokkaido
Paper size: 41 x 26.5 cm. Self-printed around 1960; from a group of prints that belongs to Asano's best post-WWII work.

Series Information: This series name may in fact represent several "Here and There" series published by Takeji from 1966 to 1973, including "Here and There in the West", Shikoku, Joshin' Etsu, and Hokkaido. I have not seen a series album for any of these series, but I have seen prints held in large envelopes, suggesting they were distributed to "hanpu-kai" members (print-buying club). That would explain the lack of a series album. Hanpu-kai were still quite popular up to the 1970s at least.
