Yoroi Faerry, Kaomi-chô
Date: 10/1857
Cheerful view of a busy stretch of the Nihonbashi River. To the left we see a row of storehouses, indicating the plenty of the period and of the shôgun. An oarsman sculls a small chokibune towards the center of the river, while a load of cargo marked “tea” passes to his right. Left is a ferry full of standing passengers. Above flit swallows, and to the right we see a stylish young woman taking in the view, her parasol aloft against the sun. This design was chosen for the cover of Henry Smith II’s book on the series.
