Utagawa Hiroshige

Asakusa Ricefields and the Torinomachi Festival from the series »One Hundred Famous Places in Edo«, 1857

About the object

Hair adornments and clothes are scattered across a courtesan's room. From the window of the room, which is located in the Yoshiwara nightclub district, we see Mount Fuji in front of a setting sun. The adjacent rice fields of Asakusa stretch out in the foreground. Perhaps the cat symbolises a courtesan wistfully gazing out of the window because she was forbidden to leave the quarter.
