Stamped signature in bottom right margin; titled in block in the lower left margin. This design is the second largest of his prints and the stream block was cut by Yoshida himself using a v-shaped gouge and a round chisel. The lines of the big waves were cut by Maeda Yujiro. The print required 8 blocks and 33 impressions. The print illustrates the upper reaches of the Tone River. PROVENANCE: An American collector who purchased it directly from the Yoshida Family in the early 60's.
