Remarks
"Watanabe Shioichiro, the grandson of the publisher Watanabe Shozaburo, relates the story that Hasui carried impressions of these four prints with him on his sketching tours throughout Japan as proof to the authorities who stopped and interogated him that he was a patriot and not a spy." Waves of Renewal, pp157-58.
