This is a very beautiful and special Japanese woodblock print “Miyamachi Street Kyoto” signed by the famous Showa Shin Hanga woodblock print master Asano Takeji (1900-1999) published by the Unsodo printmaker made in Showa Era. This is an original woodblock print. This woodblock print is one of the core collections of a large number of gorgeous, different-styled Japanese woodblock print collections in my family, which we are gradually selling. Asano Takeji is one of the most famous Shin Hanga woodblock print artists in the Showa Era. He is as famous as Kawase Hasui, Koitsu, and Yoshida with whom he opened a new Era of Ukiyoe and formed the core of Shin-Hanga.
