Notes:This is the only scene that I know of that was published after Hasui's death. It is very similar to Hasui's 1937-published "Early Morning at Okayama Castle". Probably issued by Watanabe Tadasu, the son of Shozaburo. Square Watanabe publisher seal in the lower left margin. Very rare. Another unusual recarved restrike published around this time was Tsuchiya Koitsu's "Tomonoura".
