Welcome to the international Hiroshige research website. The purpose of this website is to gather information and raise discussion. We use the catalogues of Suzuki Jūzō, Uchida Minoru and Okuda Atsuko as a standard. Since there are many unexplored research areas we will post a new topic every few months. You can join the mailing list through the contact page. Earlier topics and their comments can be found under archive. The results of earlier topics are added to the catalogue page. The website holds a database of more than 6000 images of Hiroshige’s prints, paintings, bookillustrations etc. For copyright reasons it is not possible to publish the database online but if you are looking for a certain image for research purposes you can send an e-mail through the contact page.

Additions to Okuda's catalogue part 1

The first topic of this website was the untill then unlisted uchiwa-e 'Ise Asamayama' from a series ’Meizanzukushi shokoku jūkkei'. Faulkner estimated the number of uchiwa-e in his publication at 400. Okuda Atsuko lists 548 uchiwa-e in her excellent and essential catalogue. In this topic and future ones we will add new prints and information based on Okuda's catalogue. The numbers on this page correspond to the series numbers in Okuda's catalogue.
