    Description

    Mountain! Mountain! The Mountain Invites You! (Osaka Railway Agency, 1930s). Japanese Poster (24.5" X 37").
    This wonderful sepia photographic image poster was issued by Japan's national railway, in this instance the Osaka Rail Agency, during the early to mid 1930s. These posters were created for domestic use only to promote travel within Japan to various national parks, hot spring resorts and other notable destinations. This example states; From the Northern Alps to Mount Kisokoma to Hakusan and Daisen. Discounts on mountain climbing tickets July 9th to August 31st. Osaka Railway Agency. Since none of these posters were distributed outside of Japan, they are quite scarce. When various Japanese museum poster curators (as well as the Ogaki Poster Museum) were supplied images, they replied that there were no examples of this genre in their collection. This lovely copy had chipping in the lower left and right corner and a couple of small chips in the borders. There is a tiny chip in the left background. There were tears in the upper left and right corner and right border. Fine+ on Linen.
