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

Seals: Aratame

Condition: Very good color, impression and state.

Signature: Hiroshige hitsu

Publisher: Tsutaya Kichizo

Translating to “shrine,” Miya was home to Atsuta Shrine, a significant Shinto center and home to one of three divine symbols of the imperial throne: the K usanagi-no-tsurugi (the Sacred Sword of the Emperor). In this print, bright and bold torii (gates) herald the entrance to the famous shrine, marking the boundary between the everyday world and the spiritual realm.
