Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
The Distant Bank of the Oi River Seen from Kanaya
Series; Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido

Hiroshige’s Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido - In 1832, Hiroshige first traveled from his home in Edo (Tokyo) to Kyoto along the Tokaido road. The journey was an eye opening and life changing experience for him. As an urban man of Edo he had experienced life mainly in the capital. He immediately returned to Edo after the trip and began his masterwork woodblock series from the sketches he had made on his journey. Hiroshige's Tokaido prints are an opportunity to be transported back in time to see this world as Hiroshige did in the shadow of the Tokugawa Shogunate.

The Distant Bank of the Oi River Seen from Kanaya - A beautiful and desolate area along the Tokaido road. Hiroshige's lovely view showing a small party crossing the river which has expanded some from spring rains. An important station along the Tokaido Highway, this area leading to Kanaya, which was a small town that often accommodated travelers stranded during high water after rains. Beautiful Hiroshige print.
