Fireworks at Ryogoku


Hand-made reproduction of Edo Hyakkei made the masters of Adachi Hanga.

Two-thirds of the space in this design is occupied by the night sky, where a large round fireworlk and the long curving line of another firework make a symphony of light. Below are a crowed of spectators on Ryogoku bridge and numerous boathouses. This is a masterly depiction of a night when the citizens of Edo (Tokyo) bid farewell to the departing summer.
