View of Ichikoku Bridge in the Eastern Capital (Tôto ichikokubashi). Everything seems prosperous and orderly, commerce blending with populace and nature. There are things to see in the foreground, middle distance and far horizon. There are numerous triangular shapes that echo Fuji-san in the distance, a harmonizing trick that Hiroshige often employs.
Condition: Very good impression, color and condition.
