Splendid Views of Edo～Snow, Moon and Flowers
Superb views of Japan drawn on Ukiyo-e by masters such as Hiroshige and Hokusai
People are fascinated by the magnificent scenery as before and now, people in the Edo period also seemed to love the magnificent scenery.
In the latter half of the Edo period, geographical books illustrating famous places along with their histories were published, and an innumerous amount of ukiyo-e works showing picturesque landscapes from Edo and all parts of Japan was created.
Artists depicted a wide range of scenery, from seasonal spectacles to unexplored regions and even temples overlooking the secular world from upon a cliff. Furthermore, they used imaginary viewpoints that looked down from the sky, and drew “landscape no one saw”.
In the Edo period when it was difficult to go to sightseeing spots far away, people must have admired watching the beautiful scenery depicted in ukiyo-e.
Please enjoy Japanese magnificent scenery drawn by great masters such as Utagawa Hiroshige, Katsushika Hokusai and Utagawa Kuniyoshi.
