'Fukuroi: Tea Stall', Series 'Fifty-three Stations of the Tôkaidô', No. 28

Coolies resting by a wayside shelter, while a large kettle, hung from the branch of a tree, is boiling; a woman stirs the fire, while a coolie lights his pipe at it. Close against the tree stands a road direction post, and on the right is a bird perched upon a wayside notice board; behind are rice fields, at the edge of which stands the village.  In this vicinity the highway passed through desolate fields and it was uncomfortable to journey along during the summer months. However, this district was renowned for its strong winds in winter when kite flying was a popular local pastime. This print  measures 8.5" high by 13" long, including the margins.  It is in excellent condition, no tears, holes or stains.  It bears Hiroshige's Kanji cipher, a series and title box in Kanji script, and a date seal, along with the publishers' seals, original and later.  Originally published c1853, this later edition dates to c1950.  P9017
