Tokyo, a 400-Year Narrative
Time Travel with Ukiyoe Woodblock Prints and Photos of Tokyo

Blossom viewing, festivals, gorgeous scenic spots, tourist attractions—there were plenty of places to have a good time. Tokyo today is much the same. These ukiyoe woodblock prints by Utagawa Hiroshige show some of the places which have remained most popular over the years.
