Hiroshige - Kyoka Tokaido
There are at least 17 Tokaido series by Hiroshige, starting with the “Great Tokaido” in 1834. The “Kyoka” Tokaido was the second Tokaido series. It was published by Sanoki. The complete set consists of 56 woodblock prints. The prints are chuban size, which is smaller than the larger oban size. This series is known as the Kyoka Tokaido because each print has a kyoka, a short comic poem printed on it. I find this series more intimate because the smaller format pulls the viewer into the scene. Note: The prints in this collection below are not for sale BUT we may have some duplicates for sale if you do a search for prints from this artist. Also, if you want an excellent translation of the Kyoka poems please check out Maki Mishima's excellent eBook on Amazon.com.
