Description: After the great success of "Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido," Hiroshige's next large-scale series of landscape paintings was "Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji," picking up the theme so successfully treated by his senior Hokusai.


It was the last of Hiroshige's major works, and he passed away before it was (posthumously) published in 1876. Although some of his landscapes depict the same locations as Hokusai's series, the nicely balanced composition and color tones in the vertical format give the work a sense of season, poetry, and a calm impression.

This print depicts spring on the banks of the Moto-Arakawa River (main stream of the Arakawa River). The blooming rapeseed flowers and cherry blossoms around Koshigaya-juku on Nikko Road create a delightful and peaceful springtime scene. Travelers enjoy the gentle spring day in this charming setting.

This particular print is a reproduction by Adachi company published in 1998.


There are a few slight creases at the right edge of this print.
