Hakone, 1860 by Yoshiiku (1833 - 1904)

Original Yoshiiku (1833 - 1904) Japanese Woodblock Print
Hakone, 1860
Series; Shank's Mare Tokaido

The Shank's Mare Tokaido - Jippensha Ikku's famous novel "Tokaidochu Hizakurige" or "Shank's Mare Tokaido" chronicled the comic adventures of his two heroes, Yajirobei and Kitahachi, as they made their way from Tokyo to Kyoto and then Osaka along the famed Tokaido road in the early 19th century. They traveled by "shank's mare" or on foot. The two commoners Yaji and Kita experienced a series of comic misadventures as they traveled from one station to the next. Here, Yoshiiku depicts the pair frightened by a traveler they meet at night at Hakone, one dropping his lantern in his haste to flee. A charming chuban-sized series.
