In the nineteenth century the Shinto shrine Tsunokami Benzaiten (津の守弁財天), located in the popular Shinjuku ward (新宿区), had in its garden this small body of water with waterfalls in which the inhabitants of Tokyo could find refreshment during the hot summer days.

The beautiful woodblock print presented here was made by the artist Shosai Ikkei (昇斎一景), is entitled "The New Waterfalls at Tsunokami Hill" (津の守坂 志ん瀧) and is taken from the series "Selection of Thirty-six Humorous Views of Famous Places in Tokyo" (東京名所三十六戯撰).

The print on Japanese washi paper (和紙), produced in 1872 by the publisher Yorozuya Magobei (万屋孫兵衛), is in very good condition.
