Buyo kanazawa hassho yakei, “A Night View of Kanazawa.” This area, about 10 km south of Yokohama, was renowned for its Eight Famous Views. Although without any series title, this is from a trinity of designs depicting Snow, Moon ( as here ) and Flowers. These were the last three great prints Hiroshige designed. All are rare – especially this design. Published 1857 by Okasawaya Taheiji.

Fine impression and colour. Trimmed slightly at sides, and especially at base. Slight signs of where sheets attached au verso, otherwise very good condition. Signed Hiroshige ga.
