Utagawa Hiroshige One Hundred Famous Views of Edo

Kanda-Konyacho

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.

Drying grounds are the symbol of Kanda-Konyacho, a dyers’quarter. The nearby river was tainted with indigo dyes used by them.
In the grounds in the print are being dried cotton clothes of wheel, checker and other patterns. Among them are those specially ordered by Hiroshige and his publisher. A diamond-shaped pattern was dyed on Hiroshige’s order. The white ground in the cloths is done in “blank printing” which requires expertise in using uneven blocks.
The snow-capped Mt. Fuji is painted in the crimson western sky far beyond the drying grounds.
