Utagawa Hiroshige’s extraordinary woodblock-print series One Hundred Famous Views of Edo ranks among the greatest achievements of Japanese art. Issued between 1856 and 1858, the 118 woodblock landscape and genre scenes of mid-19th-century Tokyo remain a precious record of the appearance, and spirit, of Edo at the culmination of more than two centuries of uninterrupted peace and prosperity. The four prints reproduced in this notecard assortment highlight the delicate cherry blossoms of Edo.
