Hiroshige Museum

This art museum features a collection of work by Utagawa Hiroshige, a famous ukiyo-e woodblock artist.
The pieces on display here extend from his work at the end of the Edo period up to his "4th generation" work with paintings, nishiki-e prints, and more.
Hiroshige during his so-called first generation was known for "The Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido" in particular, and it was at that time that he was commissioned by the feudal daimyo of Tendo, who was struggling financially, to paint the hanging scrolls known as "Tendo Hiroshige," which are immensely important works of art.
