Takanawa Sengaku Temple. Information in left margin indicates Hamamatsudo as the publisher, Harada as the carver of the wood blocks, and Seki as the printer. Koitsu characters and red shin seal in lower left of image. The graves of the 47 Ronin of Chushingura are at this temple. This print is from a limited edition series entitled "Sketches of Famous Places In Japan" of famous shin-hanga landscape masterworks from the artists Hasui and Koitsu, printed by the publisher Hamamatsu-Do (Doi), and also distributed by O-Edo Mokuhansha. In the early 1960's Hamamatsu-Do re-released this fine limited edition set of shin-hanga landscape prints. 28 scenes were chosen and the publisher printed 200 complete sets of 28 prints each. It is possible that later editions carrying the Hamamatsu-Do publisher seal also exist.
