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: One of the enjoyments for travelers in old days was eating local specialty foods.

Hiroshige introduced here one of those dishes by drawing the teahouse providing Tororojiru - a dish made of wild yam (Jinenjyo). The two men look to be enjoying the dish while a woman with her baby on her back is serving.

On the left, there is a man carrying a long pole which is used to dig and support the long wild yam. The soil in this area is said to be suitable for this plant.

This is a beautiful sunset scene but I wonder if the two travelers can reach the next station before dark!
