The Boundary Marker near Fujikawa  by Hiroshige (1797 - 1858)

Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
The Boundary Marker near Fujikawa
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 Boundary Marker near Fujikawa - Fantastic, Hiroshige Tokaido print depicting the arrival of the shogun's entourage at Fujikawa on their way to Kyoto. Traditionally, the shogun would send the emperor a gift of horses every year. In this scene, town officials kneel at the town boundaries to welcome the procession. Beautiful coloration in the sky.
