Minato City Through Ukiyoe

Ukiyo-e, commonly referred to in English as “woodblock prints of the floating world,” was a popular form of printed art in Japan during the Edo period, from roughly the 17th to 19th centuries. Usually, ukiyo-e art depicted scenes from the everyday life of Japanese people at the time, with a particular focus on fashion, entertainment and pleasure. In this series, we would like to share some sights from the area of the current Minato City as it was depicted through ukiyo-e at the time.


“One Hundred Famous Views of Edo: Furukawa River at Hiroo” (Hiroshige Utagawa, 1856)
Looking toward Meiji Street in the direction of Shibuya from Tengenji where its location shares borders with Hiroo and Shibuya Ward. The bridge depicted in this painting is Sagamitono-bashi and the left side of the river is Hiroo no Hara.


“Forty-Eight Famous Views of Tokyo: Crossroads at Iikura” (Shosai Ikkei, 1871)
Today’s Iikura Crossroads used to be called Yotsutsuji. Stores stand side-by-side and the decorations of tanabata, or Japan’s Star Festival, are swinging in the wind. This ukiyo-e illustrates the beginning of the Meiji period as the men in the center are wearing western-style clothes while also having chonmage, a traditional samurai-style haircut.

The above ukiyo-e paintings are owned by the Minato Local History Museum
