Hasui Kawase (from 1883 to 1957) is person who established "new print" which is new ukiyoe print print in order to revive with Japanese ukiyoe print print which declined. We were born as the eldest son of thread ancon job merchant, but were given issue of "Tomoe water" at gate personality, this time of Japanese painter, Kiyokata Kaburaki. Shiobara trilogy is announced in 1918 by Watanabe printshop when interested in woodcut on seeing <the eight best scenic places of Omi> of Shinsui Ito belonging to the same school. We assumed picture which we sketched in destination of various parts of Japan the original picture and published many print works and became the first person of scenery print afterwards in modern times.
As Tomoe water which expressed Japanese-style beautiful scenery whether is full of lyricism is called "travel emotions poet" "woodblock artist of trip" "Hiroshige of Showa", and is admired equally with Hokusai Katsushika, Hiroshige Utagawa abroad; is popular.
