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.


“View of Takanawa” (Shunsen Katsukawa, approx. 1806-1819)

“Famous Views of Annual Events in the Eastern Capital: Takanawa on the Evening of July 26th” (Hiroshige Utagawa, 1854)

 

During the 1600s, the Takanawa shoreline was streamlined with the construction of the Tokaido road (traditionally, one of the five most important roads that connected the capital with other regions). The newly built road along the coast became popular as a scenic and leisure destination. In the late 1800s, the area was filled and built as the current Shibaura, Kaigain and Konan regions where many high-rise buildings stand today.

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