Visit Tokyo in the footsteps of Hiroshige

On the roads of Edo

Hiroshige, as an Edokko (child of Edo), loved his hometown. His series of prints, One hundred famous views of Edo (1856-1859), is a tribute to the beauty, history and personality of the Japanese capital. Discover the famous views still present in Tokyo!

The unavoidable

Built in 1603, Nihonbashi Bridge, literally the bridge of Japan, is the first print of the Hiroshige series. The starting point of the Tokaido and Kisokaido (or Nakasendo) roads in the heart of Edo, it was one of the hotspots of the capital, in the immediate vicinity of many shops and full of merchants, official processions or simple inhabitants. Originally made of wood, the bridge was rebuilt in stone and steel in 1911, and then partially hidden by an impressive expressway in the 1960s.

You can, however, admire a replica of the original bridge at the Edo-Tokyo Museum. Another must-see in the capital that you can always visit in Tokyo is Senso-ji Temple in Asakusa. In the 99th print in his series, Hiroshige adopts an original composition; placing the big red lantern of the Kaminari-mon (Thunder Gate) in the foreground. The main building of the temple is completely concealed by the Hozomon door (door of the treasure room) and the pagoda in the background.
