Utagawa Sadahide “Cherry Blossoms in Miyozaki Presure Quarters near Yokohama New Port of Kanagawa” (Exhibited in the 2nd term)

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”.
