Umi No Hi

Today, on the third Monday in July, is the Japanese national holiday called umi no hi, often translated as Marine Day. As I have written about it last year, and the year before, I thought I’d simply share another Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock print with ocean theme. It is called “Waves” and was made by Konen Uehara (1877 – 1940) in 1910.
