Warehouses at Hinode wharf

Summer

Along Tokyo bay there’s a row of warehouses for variety of goods. The trucks are lined up ready for delivering. These warehouses serve as hubs to gather and supply various goods from all over Japan to the city of Tokyo in the same way they were used in the times of Edo as pictured in Hiroshige’s image.

Notes

Alongside its commercial wharfs, Hinode Pier is the main hub for four boat lines run by the Tokyo Cruise company. Boats travel back and forth among eight destinations around Tokyo Bay, including Hamarikyu Gardens and Asakusa.
