Although Hiroshi is placed within Shin hanga, he also worked independently. His self-published prints display his Western artistic training and were intended for a US and European audience, but they take inspiration from the Japanese landscape. Kura in Tomonoura clearly comes from his direct experience with nature and the world, and his combination of Western and Japanese techniques made the Shin hanga movement appealing to viewers.
