2014-3-18 Digital exhibition "The Landmarks of Edo in Color Woodblock Prints" now available

On March 18 (Tue.), the National Diet Library released the digital exhibition "The Landmarks of Edo in Color Woodblock Prints."

This exhibition presents 484 nishiki-e (color woodblock prints) picturing 103 landmarks of Edo (old name of Tokyo). You can search for landscape nishiki-e in various ways such as current and old maps, names of artists and keywords.

The colorful nishiki-e vividly convey the bustling atmosphere, landscapes, flowers of each season and amusements of the landmarks of Edo at that time. Enjoy a pleasant stroll in Edo through the nishiki-e.
