Utagawa Hiroshige One Hundred Famous Views of Edo

Takanawa-Ushimachi

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 use of ox-carts was restricted only to Edo, Kyoto and Suruga (the present Shizuoka Prefecture). Takanawa had a good view of the Boso mountains far away across Edo Bay on clear days. Houses lined the highway from here to Shinagawa.
Hiroshige avoided the bustle of the town and sketched the seaside in this print. Boats, big and small, are seen gliding on the sea. A feeling of freshness after a rainfall is produced by a rainbow in the sky and the bright colors on water-melon rind strips and straw sandals left on the sands.
