  • Capturing the beauty of the original artwork

    Every one of our prints is made using the Giclee printing process, for a museum-quality look and feel that does justice to the original art.

    Giclee printing is the gold-standard for preserving the meticulous detail and stunning colors that we love in the Japanese masters. All our prints are fade and fingerprint resistant, so you can enjoy their beauty for years to come.

    We chose to offer 12”x18” (30cm x 45cm) as this was closest to the “chuban” size sheets used for woodblock prints historically.

    All of our prints come with matte finish for a more authentic appearance.

    Framing Options:

    • Unframed
    • Framed - black
    • Canvas wrap

    Ready-to-Hang and Made to Last

    Mounting brackets are included and centered on our framed prints and canvas wraps.

    All of our prints are made to last, with fade-resistant colors and materials. See how they arrive in the unboxing videos below.

  • About the Art

    Hiroshige depicted the firework displays by Ryogoku Bridge over the Sumida river over 50 times, clearly besotted by the display and the pleasures of a beautiful summer’s night.

    The deep, dark Bokashi shading of the black night sky and the deep blue of the water contrasted against the bright lights of the fireworks overhead, creating a chiaroscuro effect.

    The first official firework display by Ryogoku bridge was commissioned by the eighth Tokugawa Shogun and staged in 1733. The symbolic opening of the river on the 28th day of the fifth month was part of a purification ritual designed to drive away the evil spirits.

    Firework displays over the bridge were not limited to this official ceremony. Throughout the hot summer months, boat-hire operators and restaurant has sponsored numerous displays, as the exciting spectacle was good for business.

    Alongside the simple boats we can see palace boats which provided space for large functions and were hired by wealthy merchants. Food and drinks could be bought from tradesmen operating boards illuminated by a single lantern, which moved between the other boats. Hiroshige includes all the various classes of boats in this print.
