Description: From the series "One Hundred Famous Views of Edo (1856-1858) which actually contains 118 total prints, in full vertical format of classic Hiroshige landscapes.

During the Edo-period, Nihonbashi was the center of logistics. It started as a base to transport and store essential goods like salt and rice. Later, it became the place where materials for industrial use were collected from all over the country, such as flour, sugar, and textiles. Nihonbashi remains the center of commerce; it has flourished into the center of the stock market.

With both Mount Fuji and Edo Castle depicted in the painting, the artist has created a New Year's-like auspiciousness, while also successfully expressing the fact that Nihonbashi is the center of the nation.

This is a post-war reproduction from the Yamada Shoin Company.

There are slight foxing spots mainly in the upper left area of this print.
