In around 1838, Kunisada produced a series of The Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido Road that featured figures of a women in front of a landscape related to the station of the Tokaido. The background landscapes were largely copied from Hiroshige's Great Tokaido. Both sets of prints are presented here for comparison.
