  • 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

    Ominous black clouds break and spill into a sudden, harsh downpour, scattering the people crossing Shin Ohashi bridge as they run for cover.

    We look down on the scene from above, and as our gaze moves beyond the people on the bridge we see an oarsman punting down the river and the boathouses on the far forested bank shrouded in mist.

    The sudden shower was a recurring motif in Japanese art, symbolically representing the sudden change of fortune which we are all subject to over the course of our lives.

    Possibly Hiroshige’s most famous print, it is certainly recognised as one of his undoubted masterpieces. Some of the credit must go to the printer and the carver, as much of the effect comes from the beautiful gradation of the inks and the fine, hairline streaks of rain, that would have required exceptional skill to carve.

    30 years after this print was made Vincent Van Gogh was inspired to paint a copy in oils.
