Sacred Bridge in Nikko, 1937.
Size: Oban, approximately 16.00 x 11.25 inches.
Publisher: Doi Hangaten.
Carver: Harada, printer: Yokoi. This seal combination indicates an early post-war edition. Its pre-war use has been a subject of debate.

This edition is illustrated in Andacht's Collector's guide on page 151.
The bridge spans the Daiya River where legend has it that Buddhist priest Shodo crossed the river on the backs of snakes.
