Artist/Maker
Place Of Origin

The view in this uchiwa-e (rigid fan print) design by Hiroshige is south-west across a grove of blossoming peach trees towards Mount Fuji. The woman standing on the right is smoking a pipe, while her seated companion sips tea. The location of this peaceful scene is to the west of Edo in what is now part of Mitaka. Mount Fuji, clad in snow and geographically relatively close, appears larger than in views taken from the centre of the city.
