Comments - Lovely scene of a farmer returning home for the evening at Tokumaru on the outskirts of Musashino (Musashi) Moor. His wife waits for him with their small child clinging to her back, light streaming from the door behind her. A soft rosy glow emanates from the windows, creating a warm inviting atmosphere that beckons the viewer in as the shadows darken in the surrounding trees. A beautiful and rarely seen design by Ishiwata Koitsu. A wonderful choice to collect or display.
