Description
From a complete set of fifty-six views of the Tokaido Road in half-block format printed on undivided oban sheets. The set is often called the Jimbutsu (or figure) Tokaido because human figures are prominent in each design. The lanterns hanging from the teahouse eaves are decorated with Hiroshige's diamond-shaped emblem.
