Description

This is a reproduction of one of the more popular designs in Hiroshige's series: 名所江戸百景 (100 Famous Scenes of Edo), seven of which are included in this set.

This one of course needs no introduction. Although everything in this print was burned to the ground in the spring of 1945, it has all be rebuilt. But in a way that does confuse people who expect the Asakusa temples to look basically the same, the Five-story Pagoda was built on the west side (to the left in this scene); its previous location is now marked by a plaque on the ground.
