This print features in the distance a snow capped mountain partially obscured by craggy foothills at right. Together the mountain and foothills take up almost half of the composition and are placed in its upper portion.
Beyond the mountain we see clear blue sky. A still, deep blue lake is seen in the midground on the left. A small light blue and white boat outlined in black is depicted on the lake near the left side of the image, leaving a small wake behind it. In the foreground of the image we see a sun-drenched bluff in pale yellows, tan, grey and white, rising from the lower left foreground and sweeping up toward the right of the composition where there appears to be a path or overlook. Brush and small trees growing on the cliff below the flattened path can be seen above it due to their height, interrupting the view of the still waters and mountain. On the middle right of the composition, an outcropping of stone in deeper warm tan with grey shadows rises above the path and low deep green foliage clings to its steep grade. Layered over this outcropping, there are two staggered lines of writing in black ink and a patterned
There are inscriptions in two staggered lines and an octagon with the composition on the right side of the Publisher's mark is black octagon.
Tokuriki Tomikichiro (1902-2000) was born to a family of artists. He attended Kyoto School of Art and Crafts and went on to study at the Kyoto City Specialist School of Painting. He then furthered his education in the Japanese style painting Nihonga, working under Tsuchida Bakusen (1887-1936) and Yamamoto Shunkyo (1871-1933). In 1929 Tokuriki made a shift in his career, studying woodblock printmaking with Hiratsuka Un'ichi (1895-1997).
Tokuriki’s work is an important link between Shin Hanga and Sosaku Hanga movements. He was considered one of the progenitors of the Sosaku Hanga movement, which embodied a new freer style of image as well as the idea that the artist can partake of all parts of the printmaking process. He was a prolific artist and publisher as well as a teacher, a writer and a seasoned traveller.
