Hiroshige II's series 'Souvenirs of Edo (Edo miyage)' (1861)


This page attempts to catalog all known prints in Hiroshige II's series 'Edo miyage (江戸 美家計 - Souvenirs of Edo)'.

The series title is in the black (negative) rectangular cartouche in the top right corner; the title of each individual print is in the rectangular cartouche next to it.

The series dates from the middle of Hiroshige II's career, when he was about thirty-five years old. At this point, he was using the name 'Hiroshige', since his master Hiroshige I had died (in 1858), and Hiroshige II had taken over the 'Hiroshige'; the prints in this series are signed 'Hiroshige'.
