'Uraga, Yedo Bay' [Tokyo Bay, Japan]

No. 40 of 51 (PAJ2051 - PAJ2101): inscribed by the artist on the album page, as title, and dated '7/69'. The Uraga Channel is the entrance to Tokyo Bay, with the town of Uraga itself lying on a deep south-facing inlet in the Miura Peninsula which forms its western side. This view is therefore northwards up the inlet, which is full of local Japanese craft. The modern town fills the left side and head to the bay shown.
