Hiroshige (1797 - 1858), "Niegawa on the Kisokaido"
|Title||Niegawa on the Kisokaido|
|Medium||Original Japanese Woodblock Print|
|Series Title||Sixty-Nine Stations of the Kisokaido|
|Reference No||Station #34|
|Size||9 -3/4 x 14 -3/4 "|
Notes: Front view of a large inn, with travelers resting inside and a waitress bringing tea to one; a man leaning over the balcony above and looking at a coolie unloading his horse; on the left an empty kago. Like Station 36 (Goyu) on the Tokaido, this view is interesting for the information given on the signboards in the inn, on which are inscribed the names of the engraver Fusajiro, and the printers Yasu-goro and Ichitaro.
