On the fifty-three stations of Tōkaidō:
This is a series created by Hiroshige after his first trip along the Tōkaidō road in 1832. This road, linking the capital Edo to the imperial capital, Kyoto, was the main axis of Japan at the time. The Tōkaidō is Hiroshige's best-known and also the best-selling work in ukyo-e history. Coming just after the series of 36 views of Mount Fuji by Hokusai, it devotes this new major theme of ukiyo-e that is now the landscape print (fūkei-ga), with in particular the representation of famous places (meisho). Hiroshige's prints will be greatly appreciated, not only in Japan, but later in the West.
