About

Artist: Hasui Kawase (1883-1957) Title: Spring Rain at Sakurada Gate Date: pub. 1946-1957 38.7 x 26.5 cm This quiet scene shows the Sakurada-mon gate at night time. The gate was part of the larger complex of Edo Castle, the residence of to the Tokugawa Shogunate in the Edo period. The layout of the castle gates are said to have been laid out in such a way to disorientate potential unwanted trespassers. Sakurada-mon gate was completed in the 1620s, however the building was reconstructed in the early twentieth century due to being severely damaged in the Great Kanto Earthquake (1923). Here, the reconstructed traditional gate takes on an ethereal quality in the reflection of the rain as if the gate were standing on a lake.
