An image of shops glowing in lantern light emerges from darkness. Reflections from rain-swept streets enhance the play of light and shadow. Yoshida created these effects by using numerous blocks to print overlapping areas of color in a manner reminiscent of Western watercolor techniques.
Yoshida was the adopted son of Yoshida Kosaburo, a teacher of Western-style painting. He first studied oil painting, specializing in landscape, but achieved greater recognition in watercolor using Western techniques before he turned to printmaking. Yoshida's workshop employed skilled technicians, but he was adept in all aspects of printmaking. Night in Kyoto has a marginal notation meaning 'self-printed' to distinguish it from impressions made by technicians.
