The Tsukiji Hotel, Tokyo by Meiji era artist (unsigned)

Original Meiji era Japanese Woodblock Print
The Tsukiji Hotel, Tokyo

Comments - Handsome depiction of the modern Tsukiji Hotel in Tokyo, constructed by the Meiji Government to house foreign visitors in 1868. This imposing building was covered with terra cotta tiles in an effort to fireproof it, but the building burnt to the ground just a few years later in 1872. Here, a carriage carrying Westerners leaves through the arched gate, a stone wall enclosing a courtyard with blossoming cherry trees. Visitors can be seen on the verandah of the upper story, and a cupola at upper right is topped with a weather van. An interesting historic subject, wonderfully detailed.

Artist - Meiji era artist (unsigned)
Image Size - 14 1/4" x 9 1/2" + left margin as shown
Condition - This print with excellent detail as shown. Partially backed with paper. Creasing, slight toning and soiling, slight rubbing at edges. Please see photos for details.
