- In the 20th century, artists and publishers collaborated to recreate famous woodblock prints for interested Japanese collectors and Westerners looking for rare designs. New blocks were made, and the prints were painstakingly printed by artisan printers in the same method as the 19th century originals - one block for each color. Woodblock reprints were an opportunity to collect and enjoy a famous design at a small fraction of the price of an original. They still are today.

Visitors climb the steep steps to the Atago Shrine at left and others pass by a row of tea stalls hung with red paper lanterns. A rainbow arches across the sky, partially hidden by the tall tree at left. A fantastic print and one of only three known designs by Hiroshige to include a rainbow.
