I have never seen this style obi but I loved the colours. What is the season for this and is there hidden meanings for this scenery theme.

That's just a fukuro obi, albeit a pretty one. I doubt there's any hidden meanings, and I think it doesn't really have a season, though I am NOT the expert on seasonal motifs, so don't take my word on that. Too bad it's from shinei, else I'd bid on it...
