Niimura Shoten . Shimosuwa Kinoshita . Wayo Orimonosho .].
- n.p. [1900]. Colour woodcut 26x38cm. Minor stain, really only noticeable in the bottom margin. This smart hikifuda - large handbill or small poster - advertises, I think, the Shimosuwa department store Niimura Shoten where they sell Japanese and western textiles. Shimosuwa is a town in Nagano, east of Tokyo. There are Niimura department stores still in a few towns around Japan but I suspect that it is a common name; it translates more or less as 'New Town'. This is also a tribute to modern transport and a helpful train (and ferry?) timetable for 1900 is provided.
