Description: A print by Hiroshige showing the pond and bridge inside the grounds of Kameido Tenjin Shrine. The Brooklyn Museum describes the print in the following way: "The arched bridge in the distance would have immediately identified this site for an Edo viewer as Kameido Tenjin Shrine, on the eastern fringe of Edo. The shrine was dedicated in the early 1660s as a part of the campaign to open the east bank of the Sumida for urban settlement in the wake of the devastating Meireki fire of 1657. The dedication to Tenjin, the deified Sugawara Michizane (845–903), patron saint of learning and calligraphy, is said to have been inspired by the personal veneration of the shogun Ietsuna (1641–80)."

Fine bokashi gradation is used in various places in the print, and the deep purple wisteria really is eye-catching.

A post-war reproduction from the O-Edo Mokuhan-sha Company.

This print has the appearance of ‘aged’ prints - furubi.

There are a few small marks at the margins, and a slight scratch at the middle left of this print, also on the backside, there is a trace of a removal from the mat board.
