Title: A bridge in Shimofusa (Shimofusa tsugibashi)
Series: One Hundred Views of Musashi Province (Musashi hyakkei no uchi)
The scene from a country side in Shimofusa Province (present Chiba and Ibaragi Prefectures). A farmer’s wife is carrying tea sets to the field where the farmers are working. We get a lovely sense of everyday village life. This series is a stylistic bridge between the work of Hiroshige and Hasui.
