Remarks
Image commissioned by the Japan Tourist Bureau in 1934. Four-and-a-half thousand prints were commissioned for Christmas cards.
Up to 8 different block sets have been identified after examining prints. Many of these prints had Robert O. Muller provenance and "Made in Japan" on verso. The print tipped into the 1951 Watanabe catalogue used a new and different block set to earlier prints.
