Series; Famous Places in Tokyo

Hiroshige III's Famous Places in Tokyo - Attractive design from a series depicting famous places in Tokyo, published over several years starting in 1868. Hiroshige III includes traditional locations and activities, as well as modern Meiji sights, such as Western style buildings and transportation. These lively scenes are filled with wonderful detail, carefully rendered with vibrant color and soft shading. A great look at the rapid changes taking place in Tokyo during the Meiji era.

Daiichi National Bank, 1873 - Terrific depiction of the Daiichi or First National Bank, the first private bank in Japan, in the Mitsugumi House at Kabuto-cho, Kaiunbashi Bridge. The Western-style lower floors were topped with a miniature castle reflecting shogunate style, complete with a tiled roof. The bridge is filled with pedestrians and vendors, and blossoming cherry trees add color. A nicely detailed design.
