Utagawa Hiroshige One Hundred Famous Views of Edo

Street Scene at Nihonbashi

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.

This print is a scene of Nihonbashi Bridge as seen from Shirokiya Store at the Nihonbashi intersection.
In the center is a Sumiyoshi dancing group. Several dancers and singers, clad in white, wear sedge hats and aprons, with fans in their hands. They are dancing around a man carrying a green umbrella with crimson cloth flappings and are singing to the tunes of shamisen (the Japanese banjo). They go from door to door for money or rice in return for what they claim ‘divine protection’ of Sumiyoshi Shrine of Osaka. Really they are not the messengers of the shrine but entertainers living in Edo.
A melon vendor on the right and a delivery-boy of a soba (buckwheat noodles) shop add a touch of a downtown atmosphere to the scene.
