Nippori, circa 1835 - 1838 - Beautiful spring view of cherry trees in bloom at Nippori in Edo. Visitors stroll about the grounds, a man slipping on the steep pathway at right, much to the amusement of passersby, who giggle and laugh at him. Below the rounded hills and tall pine trees, two monks sit on the verandah of a temple building at left, as pedestrians walk across the spacious plaza. The Boston Museum of Fine Arts has this image in its collection. An attractive Hiroshige landscape with a lovely composition.
