Seals: Aratame

Condition: Very good color, impression and state.

Signature: Hiroshige hitsu

Publisher: Tsutaya Kichizo

Though Hiroshige took many liberties in his portraits of life on the Tokaido, he accurately captures the expansive landscape at Hiratsuka. As the rivers spread across the foreground, the rugged top of Mt. Koma and snowy tip of Mt. Fuji punctuate the horizon. At the foot of Mt. Koma, the pine colonnade shades the road.
