Fifty-three stations by two brushes (Sohitsu gojusantsugi). Station 23: Fujieda
In this print a woman is seated in a kago and is bourn along on the shoulders of palanquin bearers. She is dressed in a purple, grey and brown striped kimono and she wears a scarf over her head to keep the dust from her hair. The woman is shown emptying the tobacco from her pipe.
The palanquin bearer is dressed in a blue and white lightweight yukata and a black loincloth. His legs are bear and he wears rope sandals on his feet.
In the background inset, Hiroshige depicts travellers wading across a shallow river. One traveller leads their horse across to the not-so-distant bank. Hiroshige's Hoeido edition concentrates upon the bustle between porters and travellers as luggage is removed from horseback and taken up by couriers. However, in his other Tokaido print series he focuses upon the travellers' various methods of traversing the river.
