Daimyo Procession Arriving at the Palace for the New Year's Day Greeting, 1897

Comments - Wonderful panoramic view of a long procession of feudal lords approaching Chiyoda Palace for the annual New Year's Day greeting of the Tokugawa Shogun. A fantastic image showing samurai marching solemnly towards the stone wall of the castle, the two men in front carrying gifts in large wooden crates. At right, a daimyo rides in a palanquin, surrounded by his retainers. A tower of the palace rises at left with other buildings silhouetted in gray along the horizon. Beautifully detailed with cloth embossing on the white kimono. A terrific choice for collectors interested in traditional activities during the shogun's reign.
