Description: This nishiki-e ("brocade picture") of Ôiso Station is the ninth in an untitled series of the Fifty-three Stations of the Tôkaidô Road by Eisen, originally published around the 1830s. The series appears to have compared (or paired) beautiful women with each of the fifty-three stations of the famous postal route. In the upper section of this print, we can see a vignette of the village of Ôiso (traditionally actually the eighth station on the route). In the lower section of the print is a beautiful woman who seems to be looking straight at the viewer of the print while she bathes. Her hair has been very finely carved.

This particular print is a post-war reproduction by Yamada Shoin.
