Description: This is a print from 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 print you see here is a reproduction version produced in the post-war period by one of the numerous publishing houses working at that time (Adachi, Takamizawa, Yuyudo, Bijutsu-sha, Yamada Shoin, Kyoto Hanga-in, etc.) Here at Mokuhankan we have a wide selection of such prints, far too many to scan and prepare for the website one by one.

We don't always have every print in this series in stock, but try to keep as many of them available as possible. The one you see in this photo is on hand, but feel free to contact us about other designs in this series that you don't see on the site ...

Image information: This image is well known because of its unique and dynamic way to draw Mt Fuji - with the tip of the mountain bursting out of the frame emphasizing the magnificence of its shape.

As the subtitle ('morning Fuji') shows, this is a scene of early morning. The east side of Mt. Fuji is taking on the glow of the morning sun.

The three travelers must have left Hara station early in the morning and now walking the flat area along Suruga bay. The two cranes in the bare field add a good accent to the peaceful and quiet morning atmosphere.

The load carrying man’s kimono pattern is decorated by Hiroshige’s mark!
