Utagawa Kuniyoshi Famous Places in Edo

Shin Yoshiwara

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 design is characterized by its Western-style use of horizontal and vertical elements, eith the horizon brought down very low. On the left, towi visitors to the red-light district have just alighted from their litters and concealed their faces with towels. The figure in the center is singly loudly as if beside himself. The moon with a ring around it suggests rain tomorrow.
