Utagawa Hiroshige Famous Places in Edo

Full Moon at Takanawa

The Ukiyo-e is printed on Echizen kizuki hosho washi (a unique kind of Japanese paper) handmade by Ichibei Iwano, a living national treasure. This makes the vivid colors and the soft, warm textures of woodcut prints come to life.

Takanawa at Shiba was on the border of Edo and a towngate was located here where travelers entering and leaving Edo were checked. The spacious sky, occupying the upper-half of this design, is awash with bright blue and the curving coast line extends into the distance. The large full moon of autumn is represented splendidly by a white circle. The migrating wild geese exhibit a variety of postures as they come down near to the shore.
