Utagawa Hiroshige Fifty-three Stations on the Tokaido

Arai -The Ferry-boat

The Ukiyo-e is printed on Echizen kizuki hosho washi (a unique kind of Japanese paper) handmade by Ichibei Iwano, a living national treasure. This makes the vivid colors and the soft, warm textures of woodcut prints come to life.

A ferry-boat with peasants crossing the estuary from the left. In the center, a daimyo's boat, screened, with banners and spears. The contrast between these crossing vessels--the humorous plebian spirit of the one, and the arrogant stateliness of the other--is not without satirical connotations. Arai was located on the western bank of the Imagiri Inlet. It was one of the important barrier-towns on the Tokaido. The check-point can be seen here on the far shore.
