Precious original woodblock print made by the artist Utagawa Hiroshige II (二代目歌川広重), entitled "Fish Market at Nihonbashi" (日本橋魚市) and depicting the important fish market of the Edo period (江戸時代) which was the predecessor of the famous Tsukiji market (築地市場). In the background the wonderful view of Mount Fuji (富士山) that, nowadays, cannot be enjoyed due to the development of the urban architecture of modern Tokyo.

The work was printed in December 1860 and is the first print of the series Edo meisho yonju hakkei (江戸名所四十八景), ie "Forty-Eight Views of Famous Places of Edo", produced 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 and two small restorations on the margins, is in very good general condition.
