Utagawa Hiroshige Fifty-three Stations on the Tokaido

Fujieda -The Relay Station

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.

Relay stations were set up on the Tokaido where fresh horses were provided, luggage weighed, porters hired, and so forth. A group of porters and horses are shown here resting outside the relay station at Fujieda. The man kneeling on the platform at the extreme right is probably an official of the relay station. The diagonal composition resulted in an unusually effective design. The beautiful gradation of the color in the ground was lost in the later editions.
