Description: This is a full set of prints of what is perhaps the single most famous series of Japanese woodblock prints ever produced - "The 53 Stations of the Tokaido", designed by Hiroshige in the 1830s.

The set you see here is a reproduction version produced in the post-war period by a media company, Houdou Shuppansha. It's a bulky yet gorgeous set; each print is in a mat holder and contained in a luxe cloth-bound case. It includes with a pamphlet in Japanese and a matching wooden frame (acrylic, not glass) (Let us know if you don't want the frame).

The dimension displayed is the print image size and the outer cardboard box is approximately 60 x 46 x 13cm.

The Tokaido prints were featured in a pair of 'David's Choice' YouTube videos in October of 2020.


Special Shipping Notice

Warning: this set is massive, weighing in at 11 kg (approx. 25 lbs), beyond what our shopping cart can calculate. So we have set the price to include sea freight to any common destination. We can quote an air freight supplement if you wish it shipped that way.

All of the prints are in good condition.

Note: Arai in the original set had foxing spots, so we have replaced a clean version of the print from the same publisher.

The metal parts on the backside of the frame are a little stained.

This set is numbered 152, of what was purported be an edition of 300 copies.
