About This Print

From Wikipedia we have "Tsugaru is located on the west coast of Tsugaru Peninsula, facing the Sea of Japan. The city has a cold maritime climate characterized by cool summers and cold winters with heavy snowfall."  This small print captures what the cold winter must be like.  A wintry road leading to a farm was also the subject of the below larger print by the artist bearing the same title.
