I am selling this exceptionally beautiful colour woodblock print showing in the soft light of dawn (or evening), Shirasagi Castle—a white castle complex (aka Himeji-jō; Himeji Castle; Hakuro-jō; White Egret Castle; Shirasagi-jō; White Heron Castle) in the Hyōgo Prefecture of Japan that I understand some viewers perceive as resembling “a bird taking flight” (—for the total cost of AU$697 (currently US$460.87/EUR422.11/GBP363.55 at the time of posting this listing) including postage and handling to anywhere in the world, but not (of course) any import duties/taxes imposed by some countries.

If you are interested in purchasing this glorious woodblock capturing, with great subtlety, the atmosphere, colour and poetically quiet and mellow mood that is distinctly Japanese (at least from my way of looking at this amazing print), please contact me ( and I will send you a PayPal invoice to make the payment easy.
