Utagawa Hiroshige Fifty-three Stations on the Tokaido

Ferry at Kuwana Station

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.

Tokaido travelers usually went by boat from Miya to Kuwana because there were several dangerous rivers to be crossed if the journey were undertaken by foot. The two sailing boats shown here, with sails partly lowered, are entering the harbor at Kuwana. Kuwana Castle is shown beyond. Other sails on the blue sea at the left. The exquisite shading of the water was much attenuated in later editions of the print.
