Utagawa Hiroshige One Hundred Views of Famous Places in Edo

New Year's Eve Foxfires at the Nettle Tree in Oji

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.

“Inari (the god of harvests) Shrine of Oji is the general manager of all Inari Shrine in the eight Kanto provinces and he bestowed ranks and honors to his fellow foxes. (The fox is the deity of Inari Shrine) On New Year’s Eve the fox gods gathered under the nettle tree near the shrine of Oji. There they dressed themselves up and went to worship at the head shrine. Farmers in the neighboring districts forecast their next year’s crops at the lengths of the fires carriad by the foxes.”
