Deer in Nara - Stag
Omura Koyo (1891-?)
I have to confess that I don't much like this touristy souvenir print. The treatment of the deer and the background as completely separated elements is the problem, I think.
There is a sticker on the verso side from the Tokyo "Elite" store where this print was purchased.
