Fifty-three stations by two brushes (Sohitsu gojusantsugi). Station 15: Yoshiwara
In this print, a Buddhist monk is seated on the ground with his legs tucked up into his chest. He stares upwards, perhaps admiring the view of Mount Fuji that appears in Hiroshige's landscape inset. Next to the monk lies his woven hat and bamboo walking stick. The monk has a shaved head and wears a black robe and the straw sandals traditionally worn by travellers and pilgrims.
In the background, Hiroshige presents a view of Mount Fuji viewed through the trunks of towering pine trees. The Hoeido series also depicts Mount Fuji but focuses on the raised pathway that cuts through the fields.
