Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858) was an ukiyo-e (woodblock print) artist of the Edo Period. He made his first journey down the Tokaido Road in 1832, which resulted in his first great artistic success, the original 53 Stations of the Tokaido Road, a series which catapulted him to contemporary fame and success. This piece, A Scene of Kanagawa, is one of the fifty-five ukiyo-e images of the 53 Stations of the Tokaido Road, Hoeido Edition.
