About this print, Kitaoka (1918 – 2007) said: “Japanese Seashore represents the loneliness of the house of a fisherman which stands on the sand hill looking down the Okhotk Sea. The sea, seen a little bit beyond the hill, is dark and cold, and it does not seem to promise a good catch of fish. The fisherman’s wife, drawing water, lives under the mercilessness of nature.”
