In 1963-1964 Toshi Yoshida produced a group of landscape prints depicting Japanese gardens utilizing a 'white outline' format in a limited palette that made much use of the lightness and texture of the paper. Although not identified, the distictive lobed window and framing are recognizable as that of the Kenninji, the oldest Zen Buddhist temple in Kyoto, founded in 1202 by the priest Eisai (also known as Yosai) who introduced both Zen Buddhism and tea cultivation from China.
