Comments - Charming Hiroshige pillar print depicting a large black Japanese ox wandering under the slender branches of peach trees in a garden The verse at upper right reads:
Grasses of the field lie under the fog
I come back from the peach garden in rain.
The pink blossoms form a lovely contrast with the soft grays of the design. An attractive choice for framing.
