About the Art

This masterpiece from hasui hails from the series "Twenty Views of Tokyo". According to art historian Narazaki "This is a masterpiece within Hasui's oeuvre and no other by him received as much praise".

Zōjō-ji is a Buddhist temple in Tokyo, Japan - the main temple of the "Pure Land" Chinzei sect of Buddhism in the Kantō region.

It is also the final resting place for six of the Tokugawa shoguns, the ruling clan that reigned during the Edo period, who were buried in the mausoleum of the temple grounds. After the fall of the Tokugawa shogunate, the surroundings took on the role of a public park.

The main gate, visible in the background of this print, is the only part of the original temple complex that remains today, as fire, natural disasters and WWII raids claimed ever more of the principal buildings. Established in 1622, it's now the oldest wooden building in Tokyo.

Located in the Shiba neighborhood of Minato, it is surrounded by the Shiba Park and near the Tokyo Tower.
