Shin Tokyo Hyakkei 新東京百景



In 1928, a group of eight Japanese artists got together to produce a series of prints, called
Shin Tokyo Hyakkei, One Hundred Views of New Tokyo, New One Hundred Views of Tokyo

- quote
Shin Tokyo Hyakkei:
The Eastern Capital Revisited by the Modern Print Artists

by James B. Austin
In his introduction to the catalogue of modern Japanese prints exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago early in 1960, Oliver Statler distinguishes four generation of sosaku hanga artists.
First came the pioneers, men such as Yamamoto Kanae and Tobari Kogan who pointed the way. Then came a second generation "who created a sound intellectual base for the movement, who fought through to recognition of their prints as serious art, and who, by their personal magnetism, attracted scores of younger artists." This was the generation which began to reach artistic maturity in the early days of Showa. Though few of them had, at that time, achieved either the artistic freedom or personal style which was to characterize their later work, all were experimenting. Moreover, they were collectively striving to form some viable association which would solidify the movement and nurture its growth. These efforts, from the acceptance of such prints at the Government show of 1927 to the formation of the Nippon Hanga Kyokai in 1931, are described by Onchi in his Nippon Gendai Hanga (of which a partial translation in English appeared in Ukiyo-e Art, No. 11, 1965) and by Fujikake in his book, Japanese Wood-Block Prints (1938).
An interesting and revealing example of this tendency
was a group of eight artists who, in 1928, banded together to publish, over the next four years, a series of prints entitled Shin Tokyo Hyakkei (One Hundred Views of New Tokyo).
These artists were
Hiratsuka Un-ichi, Onchi Koshiro, Fukazawa Sakuichi, Kawakami Sumio, Maekawa Sempan, Fujimori Shizuo, Hemmi Takashi and Suwa Kanemori.

Hiratsuka recalls that this series was planned so that many aspects of Tokyo could be "remembered by people for a long time." In this connection, one must keep in mind that much of Tokyo had been destroyed in the great earthquake and fire of 1923 so that the city and its life which the artists wished to depict were, in many respects, rather new.
One cannot help wondering whether they were intending, consciously or unconsciously, to record the current scene against the possibility of new disasters. They were, in a way, repeating what Hiroshige had done 75 years before in his Meisho Edo Hyakkei series.

Tokyo Shitamachi Hyakkei (Japanese Edition)
by Tsuchimochi Shinji

歌川広重の「名所江戸百景」をモチーフに、東京に今なお残る下町の風景を切り取ったつちもちしんじ「下町百景」シリーズ
"100 Views of Tokyo" gets the idea from "One Hundred Famous Views of Edo", Hiroshige Utagawa's works.
These artworks were rendered views of extant old town in Tokyo. It published on the web and created a sensation until finish in 2016. We gather these works into one book. Moreover, we added newly drawn pictures like guide maps of 3 areas in Tokyo and 5 Views of Osaka.
This book is written in Japanese and English. Therefore this is the most suitable gift from Japan or for friends in Japan.

- quote -
Maple season at Takinogawa, Oji, Tokyo, c. 1910.
"A notice of the floral festivals of the year as observed in Japan demands some mention of the maple – for the reddening leaf of the maple, like the foliage of many other blossomless trees, is regarded as a flower in Japan.
"The rich tints of the changing leaves of certain deciduous trees hardly distinguishable from the colouring of blossoming shrubs, such as the azalea, form a favourite object of attraction during the Autumn months. The native term, momiji, which is commonly translated 'maple', is, strictly speaking, a general name applied to many trees which redden in the Fall.



"Of the maple itself, there are many varieties distinguished both by the form of their leaves and the tone of their changing colour. No garden is considered complete without its group of such reddening trees, placed beside some artificial hill towards the West, to receive additional splendour from the setting sun.

"… At Ko-no-dai, a famous prominence commanding a view of the whole plain of Tokio, there are some magnificent maple trees noted for their enormous size … About the end of October, in the glen called Taki-no-gawa at Oji, a suburb of Tokio, the slopes of a natural glen between the hills are planted with thick masses of these trees forming a most romantic spot where from the galleries of a rustic arbour the sight of the foliage in all its burning splendour may be enjoyed. Shinagawa and Meguro, other well known spots in the vicinity of the capital, have also good groups of maples which attract many sight seers. Picnicking and mushroom gathering are pastimes which accompany the viewing of the maple.

"In the poems and pictures of the country, the maple is associated with deer:
How full of sorrow seems the Autumn! when
In solitary rambles slowly straying,
Amid the russet foliage of the glen,
I listen to the lonely stag's sad baying."


– The Floral Art of Japan: The Flowers of Japan and the Art of Floral Arrangement, Josiah Conder, 1899
