Tokugawa Shogun's Ship at Okawasuji, 1897
Series; Outer Chiyoda Palace (Chiyoda no on-omote)

Tokugawa Shogun's Ship at Okawasuji, 1897 - Fantastic scene depicting the Tokugawa Shogun's ship on the Okawa River, a massive craft with a two story cabin hung with purple and blue awnings featuring the three hollyhock crest of the Tokugawa Clan. Noblemen are seated on both levels, the upper floor decorated with fine screens patterned with trees and golden clouds. Rowers sit in a small gallery along the side of the ship, their oars extending into the rippling water below. At left, a fisherman tosses a large net into the sea and ferries carries passengers across the water. A terrific design, beautifully detailed with burnishing in the black prow of the ship, delicate cloth embossing in the fluttering flags, and embossing along the edge of the clouds. A wonderful Chikanobu subject from life in the days of old Japan.
