Print

The great 19th Century Japanese landscape artist Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) completed many designs for woodblock prints over his lifetime. Omi Hakkei is the Eight Beautiful Views of Omi, or Lake Biwa as it is now known. This is not the only set of Omi Hakkei designed by Hiroshige, but it is considered the best:

 

autumn moon at ishiyama

descending geese at katata

evening snow at mt hira

haze on a clear day at awazu

evening bell at mii temple

evening glow at seta

night rain at karasaki

returning sails at yabase
