Kinryūzan Temple, Asakusa
The most famous of “One Hundred Famous Views of Edo” series of 118 works is ’Sudden Shower over Shin-Ōhashi bridge and Atake’, and followed by this ’Kinryūzan Temple, Asakusa’. Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858) placed the big and eye-catching Kaminarimon lantern at Sensoji Temple in Asakusa on the foreground of the screen. As the snow is falling silently, the vermilion gate and the five-storied pagoda can be seen between the white-covered forests.
