Temple of Kinugasa
Takahashi Shotei (1871-1945) - You can find lots of information about Shotei on my All About Takahashi Shotei page. He used various art names, such as Hiroaki, Rakutei, and Kakei.
This is the same design as a smaller print (S-3 in my Shotei catalog) which is in the Watanabe 1936 catalog as #164. There is no mention of the larger size of this design in the post-quake catalogs. Shimizu Hisao, in the Ota-ku Folk Museum 2005 Shotei exhibition catalog, lists a couple of copies of this design in this size. He dates one (# 121) as pre-quake and he dates this one (# 122) as post-quake (1924-1927). I'm going with Shimizu-san's dates on this one.
