Utagawa Hiroshige One Hundred Famous Views of Edo

Sakurada near Hibiya

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.

The outer moat of the Edo Castle and the mansion of Matsudaira Hizennokami, a feudal lord of Saga are described in the print. A New Year pine-tree gate decoration, playing at battledore and shuttlecock and kite-flying speak of a peaceful New Year atmosphere.
The moat has since been filled in and the lord’s mansion is gone. The Imperial Hotel now stands on the busy quarter on the left-hand side of the picture. Thousands of cherry trees were said to have been planted on the ridges in the rice-fieids around here. Hence the name of Sakurada (cherry field).
