Description: This print is from the set 'Kacho Fugetsu (Beauties of Nature)' which consists of 20 Hiroshige design prints in ōtanzaku format published by Yuyudo in the 1970s, produced by the best engravers and printers at that time.

Two swallows prepare to land on a branch of a peach blossom tree. The flowers are just about to bloom, and the illustration perfectly conveys the promising feeling of the start of spring. The poem reads: "Spring has come and/peach blossoms float in all the streams/how impossible to determine where utopia is" (translation by the RISD Museum). Beautiful karazuri blind-embossing has been used to signify the texture of feathers on the bodies of the sparrows.


A few paper fibers are visible on this print.
