Description: This is one of the most stunning print designs in the entire ukiyo-e tradition. Hiroshige had experimented with 'mistyness' in a couple of other designs ('Mishima' in his Tokaido series, for one), but this print represents a massive transformation from the historical 'black outlines, flat colour' that forms the basis of the genre.


This particular edition was produced by the O-Edo Mokuhan-sha in the immediate post-war period, and their printers have done a good job of catching the mood of the design.

There are a few foxing spots in the upper left ...

(This one was carved by Kametaro Harada, whose bench Dave is using these days, having received it from Harada-san's son a few years ago.)
