Description: A woodblock-printed postcard probably published for foreign tourists in the 1950s, featuring a sightseeing spot in Japan. It probably depicts the corridors of Itsukushima-jinja, a Shinto shrine in Hiroshima Prefecture famous for its symbolic great torii gate that appears floating on the sea at high tides. The vermilion-painted buildings appear to stand out in the cold snowy landscape.

Note: unlike some of the other prints of this type that we currently have in the catalogue, this one is not mounted on a postcard.

This print has slight foxing spots. Also, there are a few red marks on the right side and a white mark at the bottom right corner.
