Utagawa Hiroshige One Hundred Famous Views of Edo

Evening Rain in the Akasaka Paulownia Field

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 one of the fine works of Hiroshige II. Notably attractive in it is the depiction of the atmosphere of a rainy evening. It beautifully describes a sight through drizzling rain at Kiribatake, an area near Benkei Bridge, between Akasaka Mitsuke and Yotsuya Mitsuke with the slope Kinokuni-zaka along the moat. The double fade-out of the background, the blue color of the moat, the shadowy plants on the distant bank and the sky fading away in vapor, are all effective in presenting the poetic setting. The appearance of the figures in the foreground, too, is expressive of the feeling of walkers in rain.
