Comments - Beautiful view of the Red Gate of Tokyo University in Hongo on a winter day. Figures make their way through the falling snow beneath umbrellas, one man just coming through the large wooden gate. The edges of the snow-covered trees and the rooftops are shaded in soft blue as evening falls. A lovely shin-hanga winter scene.
