Original Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Print
Famous Places in Edo Surogoku Game Board
Comments - Terrific sugoroku game board featuring views of famous places inEdo. Sugoroku is a dice game similar to snakes and ladders that was popular with both adults and children. Players move around the board to reach the large goal in the center, which depicts a shrine. The starting point at lower right is the Nihon Bridge. A fantastic and rare Hiroshige design, and a great choice for a collector.
