Description: Toshi Yoshida was a prolific artist who left behind a vast catalogue of images when he passed away in 1995. His family has continued to have his designs re-printed posthumously, so the signature you see in the corner is not a hand-drawn signature by the artist, but was instead printed by the printer. The prints here at Mokuhankan are recent re-printings by our partner Numabe Shinkichi, using the original blocks (You can click his name above for a little more information about him.)

Up until his father passed away in 1950, Toshi Yoshida mainly followed in his father’s footsteps by creating landscapes around Japan in the shin-hanga style. These are the prints he is most famous for, but he later experimented with many different subjects and styles. We hope you will enjoy the interesting selection of his works available here.

Tokyo has changed a lot since this 1939 scene in Iidabashi was turned into a woodblock print! It's no longer the quiet rural area you see here. Maybe on your next trip to Japan you can drop by the area and compare this print to your own photos.

This print is part of a series of scenes around Tokyo that Yoshida designed in the late 1930s and early 1940s. You can find more prints in that series here:
