Fine printing from the respected Tokyo publisher Oedo Mokuhansha - These classic designs were produced by the well known Tokyo publisher Oedo Mokuhansha amidst a resurgence of interest in ukiyo-e. Like many of these traditional businesses, the woodblock print craft was passed down through generations, and the Oedo Mokuhansha company was formed by descendents of an Edo era publisher. These are nice prints of the highest quality standards and an excellent choice if you are looking for fine old woodblock reprints.

Horikiri Iris Garden - Beautiful view of the iris garden in the village of Horikiri. Gardeners at Horikiri grew flowers all year round for the market in Edo, but they were most famous for the special variety of iris shown here, called "hanashobu," which grew well in the swampy land around the community. Hiroshige presents three beautifully detailed blossoms in the foreground, framing a view of the iris field in the distance along the water's edge. A few visitors admire the blossoms, making their way through the rich foliage. An exquisite design with lovely color and fine bokashi shading. A favorite from the series.
