Minato City Through Ukiyo-e

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 Beautiful Women at Famous Places in Edo: Sanno Shrine” (Toyokuni Utagawa, 1857)

The woman depicted in the ukiyo-e is one of the dancers who participated in the Tokugawa Shogunate’s festival held at the Hie Shrine.

“One Hundred Famous Views of Edo: Distant View of Akasaka and Tameike Pond from Kinokunizaka Hill” (Hiroshige Utagawa,1857)

This ukiyo-e portrays a feudal lord's procession, or daimyo gyoretsu, as was held throughout the Edo period. After the 17th century, there were many mansions of lords, or daimyo, in the Akasaka and Tameike area. They largely functioned as defence of the west side of the Edo castle.The river that flows by was streamlined as an outer moat of the Edo castle and was also used as a holding pond for certain time. Thus the name Tameike (holding pond) derives from.

 

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