woodblock-logs-in-river-tokyo-kiba

Woodblock print of a canal used to transport logs in Tokyo. In Japanese, the word ‘kiba’ 木場 means ‘timber basin’ 貯木場, a variation of ‘lumberyard’ 貯木. The current-day Kiba neighborhood in Koto-ku was full of floating lumberyards, as was Odaiba. For more art by this artist, see: Koizumi Kishio 小泉癸巳男 (1893-1945)
