Remarks
January 1953 calendar print.
This print was a recarved reproduction and is identifiable by its more roughly carved keyblock that was left undated.
Most postwar prints and all posthumous prints used these 1952 blocks and not the original 1931 blocks of Snow at Shiba Park. In other words, they are not restrikes but in fact reproductions.
