    Description: Asakusa Kannon Temple nicely captures the atmosphere within this venerable Tokyo landmark, where the hum of voices, clink of coins thrown into the offering box, and flutter of pigeons in the rafters reverberate off the dusty wooden floor. This cacophony is paralleled by the visual confusion of colorful kimonos, flying birds, huge lanterns, and votive paintings, all competing for space in the half-lit interior

    Eisho Narazaki (1864-1936) had studied the art of woodblock printmaking with Eitoku Kobayashi (1843-1890). In the beginning he used the artist name Furo and later Eisho. In the early 1930's the artist made a few designs in shin hanga style with Watanabe.
