(1797-1858)
Hibiya and Soto-Sakurada from Yamashita-chô. Witty and indirect view of a New Year’s shuttlecock game being played by unseen revelers.
Date: 1857
New Year’s festivities are indicated by the flying kites as well as the two battledores tossing the shuttlecock that floats in the middle sky. We see the entrance to the mansion of the Nabeshima clan just beyond the curve of the moat. From the series “One Hundred Famous Views of Edo.” With extensive woodgrain evident in the sky and foreground.
