  • Capturing the beauty of the original artwork

    Every one of our prints is made using the Giclee printing process, for a museum-quality look and feel that does justice to the original art.

    Giclee printing is the gold-standard for preserving the meticulous detail and stunning colors that we love in the Japanese masters. All our prints are fade and fingerprint resistant, so you can enjoy their beauty for years to come.

    We chose to offer 12โ€x18โ€ (30cm x 45cm) as this was closest to the โ€œchubanโ€ size sheets used for woodblock prints historically.

    All of our prints come with matte finish for a more authentic appearance.

    Framing Options:

    • Unframed
    • Framed - black
    • Canvas wrap

    Ready-to-Hang and Made to Last

    Mounting brackets are included and centered on our framed prints and canvas wraps.

    All of our prints are made to last, with fade-resistant colors and materials. See how they arrive in the unboxing videos below.

  • About The Art

    This view of a bamboo yard in Tokyo alongside the Komagata River is from Hasui's first print series - Twelve Scenes of Tokyo. In a romanticized view of rapidly modernizing Tokyo, Hasui's scenes often make it appear as a sleepy hamlet, rather than the burgeoning metropolis it was.

    A worker naps on top of his cart in the heat of a summer's day. The bamboo stacks fall apart to reveal a cooling sliver of blue, poetically echoing the moment's respite of the workman and his horse.ย 

    Kawase Hasui spoke of this print:

    "This is from a sketch that I made one summer afternoon in the front of a bamboo shop at the Komagata river-bank in Asakusa. One can see the other side of the river through the bamboo stalks, which are stacked side by side, in the shape of a half-opened fan. I thought the mood conveyed by the horse standing listlessly and the drayman slumbering on his dray was very summer-like."
