市ヶ谷八幡 Ichigaya Hachiman

Hachiman Shrine in Ichigaya moat and shopping street. Dated one month after Hiroshige’s death and therefore attributed to Hiroshige II by some art historians (1858.10)

廓中東雲 Kakuchū shinonome

Dawn Inside the Yoshiwara. Published two months prior to the reopening of Yoshiwara after it burnt down in the 1855 earthquake; Hiroshige may have submitted this design and title following the suicide of two courtesans and their two lovers at dawn of the 19th day of the 4th month of 1857.  

真乳山山谷堀夜景 Matsuchiyama San’yabori yake

Night View of Matsuchiyama and the San’ya Canal. Only image in the series to depict a large human figure, purportedly the favourite geisha of Hiroshige; Shōten Shrine on the top of the hill has sexual connotations.(1857.8)
