Very nice impression and colours, on thick paper and with full margins. In bottom right corner hexagonal embossed seal of Shirô. Paper a little age-toned, mat stain in margins, some stains in margins, partly due to printing. Verso in margins some toning, in bottom an top brown stains from  removed tape (only slightly visible from the front). Overall still very good condition. The small cut-out in bottom right corner is the registration mark (kentô) for printing.
