This interesting Japanese work is the no. 3 from the series Intermediate Tokaido Stations and Views on the Narita Highway. Hiroshige created the designs for this series between 1834 and 1835, but it was never printed during his lifetime. In 1919, the S. Sakai publishing firm learned of the existence of the original drawings intended for Edo era release, which belonged to Mr. Takahata Kazuwo, a collector in Yokohama. Sakai used the original drawings, which had already been prepared for block cutting, to expertly produce the first and only edition of the series ever released.

This beautiful delicate work depicts a typical Japanese landscape with a small  path and blossom plum trees. In the center of the composition we can see several human figures; one of them  is walking the path on a donkey.

This beautiful elegant work has been realized by Utagawa Hiroshige (Edo, 1797 - Edo, 1858). He is one of the most importan Japanese artists and one of the last great ukiyo-e masters of the colour woodblock print. His genius for landscape compositions was first recognized in the West by the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists. His print series Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido (1833–34) is perhaps his finest achievement.
