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 Goudo-juku was the fifty-fourth post of the Nakasendō. Eisen depicted the scene of the famous Nagara River cormorant fishing. In actual cormorant fishing, the fishermen are busy in groups of three, but in this work, they are in pairs, blowing a smoke pipe and looking relaxed, creating a kind of elegant summer feel.

This print is a reproduction published by Sakai-Kokodo in 1956.

This print has toning, some spots, and a few slight creases but retains its rich coloring. It comes with a description sheet in Japanese.
