This ukiyo-e by Kitagawa Utamaro 喜多川 歌麿 (1753- 1806) is about hatsu yume, the first dream of the New Year. It is a good sign, if you dream of one of the following three items: ichi-fuji, ni-taka, san-nasubi, that is: first about Mount Fuji, second about a hawk and third about an eggplant. If you have one of these auspicious dreams, you will have a good year!
Thank you for the pleasure of your friendship and goodwill during the past year. I wish you a wonderful holiday season and a New Year full of happiness and prosperity.
