Notes: These prints belong to the series entitled Toto Meisho or Koto Meisho. Scores of them first appeared between 1833 and 1843. The first prints bear a red stamp of a publishing house styled Kikakudo, but later prints have a black stamp styled Sanoki instead of Kikakudo. Both represent the same publisher, Kikakudo being his firm's name and Sanoki an abridged form of his private name styled Sano-ya-Kihei.
