Utagawa Hiroshige (Andō Hiroshige), ‘Kameyama’, 1855, Ronin Gallery

Seals: Aratame

Condition: Very good color, impression and state.

Signature: Hiroshige hitsu

Publisher: Tsutaya Kichizo

Located four-and-a-half miles from Shono, Kameyama was a thriving castle town. In this dramatic rendering, lightning cracks above the castle and heavy rain falls in insistent streaks. Figures bow their heads against the downpour and trudge uphill to the station. Today, many buildings from 19th century Kameyama station are within the modern city of Kameyama.
