Description: This is an unusual item in our Flea Market catalogue - a freshly made print, but not by us here at Mokuhankan. One of the traditional printers living and working in Tokyo for many years, Mr. Tsutomu Mitamura, has decided to try his hand at issuing some print reproductions himself.

Hiroshige sketched three iris plants in the foreground, people strolling in the garden, and a wide horizontal vista in the background. The picture representing Hiroshige’s outstanding skill in composition is very popular with foreigners.

The iris Gardens of Horikiri has been popular since the Tokugawa days. Records say irises of various colors were first planted here by farmer Izaemon during the Bunka Years (1804-1818).


(Note the dimensions - this is a reproduction at smaller scale than the famous original version)
