Comments - Beautiful view of the Red Gate at Tokyo University in Hongo on a winter day. A single figure stands beneath the main entrance as snow falls gently through the darkening sky. Snow covers the rooftops and grounds, outlining the bare braches of the tree framing the scene at right. A lovely shin-hanga winter scene by a rarely seen artist.
