Description: "The 69 Stations of the Kiso Kaidō" is a series of ukiyoe woodblock prints created by Keisai Eisen and Utagawa Hiroshige around 1835-1837. It consists of a total of 70 prints of 69 stops along the Nakasendo route between Tokyo and Kyoto.

This print, Shinmachi-shuku, the 11th post station, is the first station that Hiroshige depicted for the series. He created a "picturesque landscape" rather than a real scene; after crossing the bridge, the street that would normally go straight to the left is bent and brought to the front left, making it easier to see the scene of people traveling along the street, and adding Mt. Akagi, which looks like Mt. Fuji in the background.

This print is a reproduction from the Taisho period (1912-1926).

This print has toning, mat burns in the over-wide margins, and slight creases, but retains a very rich color.
