Hamamatsu (Hamamatsu City, Shizuoka Prefecture)!
Utagawa Hiroshige (Japanese: 歌川 広重), also Andō Hiroshige (Japanese: 安藤 広重; 1797 – 12 October 1858) was a Japanese ukiyo-e artist, considered the last great master of that tradition.
Hiroshige is best known for his landscapes, such as the series The Fifty-three Stations of the Tōkaidō.
Although you can see all 53 wood block prints at the Hiroshige Museum in Yui, Shimizu Ku, Shizuoka City, did you know you can see 45 (at the final check today!) of them daily if you walk along Gofuku Cho Street?
I’m preparing a total compilation of the ukiyo-e only, including the ones missing, that is a total of 53+2= 57!
Before I proceed with the last ukiyo-e of this series I want to show you a few more pictures of art works created with them!
