Utagawa Hiroshige One Hundred Views of Famous Places in Edo

Kinryuzan Temple at Asakusa

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 well-known design depicts a snow scene in the precinct of Sensoji, a popular temple commonly known as Kinryuzan, after the hill on which it was situated at Asakusa, north of the city. Founded in 628, it housed a Kannon whose benevolence appealed to many followers. The view in this print is from the gate called Kaminarimon (Thunder Gate), the outer gate in extreme close-up, showing only the pillars and gigantic lantern right over the viewer' head - one of Hiroshige's favorite compositional schemes.
