Precious original woodblock print made by the famous Utagawa Hiroshige (歌川広重) and depicting the Fuchu station (府中宿), in today's Shizuoka Prefecture (静岡県). On the right, not far from the banks of the Abe River (安倍川), we can see what, in the inset on the roof, the artist indicates as "meibutsu mochiya" (名ふつ餅屋), that is a "famous mochi sweets shop".

The work is taken from a series entitled "Tokaido Road: The Fifty-three Stations" (東海道 五十三次之内) and was produced in a period between 1850 and 1851 by the publisher Tsutaya Kichizo (蔦屋吉蔵), owner of Koeido (紅英堂).

The print on Japanese washi paper (和紙), despite the right signs of aging, is in good general condition.
