One of Hiroshige's masterpieces from the Hoiedo edition of his famous “53 Stations of the Tokaido" series of woodblock prints, a daimyo procession enters Tsuchiyama in Shiga Prefecture and braves driving rain while crossing a bridge to reach respite in the buildings across the raging stream. A moody, yet magnificent composition with spectacular use of lines throughout to convey a stormy night.
