More about this print: The river near Chofu, a village on the Musashi Plain, was known as one of the Mu Tamagawa or Six Jewel Rivers. Its clean water was ideal for treating cloths. A famous poem by Lord Teika (1162-1241) about the Chofu river reads as follows: "At Tatzukuri - on cloth spread out for bleaching - the morning dewdrops lay shining strings - Jewel River village."
Pictures: Pictures are taken outdoor, in the shade, to reflect true colors, without any enhancements of any kind. The last picture is taken indoor, with a light behind the print, to reveal the exact paper grain, holes if any, or other possible flaws.
