TOKAIDO HARIMAZE ZUYE. Mixed Prints of Tokaido. 12 sheets in a set. Published by Ibasen ().
Harimaze Zuye is more of designs than of mere representations of objects. Hiroshige's are especially skilfully rendered. On a plate of 0-ban size, there are represented four or five prints of simple style showing a town, famous local products or sceneries, or subjects of some historical stories. This series consists of 12 sheets containing 55 prints. There are two other harimaze Tokaido of similar style. In the above series Nihonbashi is represented by fish, Shinagawa by women picking sea-weed and Kawasaki by peach blossoms.
