This woodblock entitled "Haneda Ferry and Benten Shrine" by Hiroshige is an absolute fabulous example of the rare print. Having never been displayed and stored flat its entire life the original color is visually striking with its deep reds, blue and green color that this composition is mostly composed of. This woodblock is executed on hand laid paper and adhered down to a thin paper via tacked in the top right and lower right corner. The images provided accurately represent the quality, condition and aesthetic beauty of this incredibly rare Hiroshige woodblock print.

This print shows the interesting viewpoint of the passenger of the ferry heading south from the village of Haneda as indicated by the parasol in the lower right. Their are some mixed feelings about the ferry mans hairy arms and legs being shown but I personally love the stylized choice which separates it from the majority. The condition overall is excellent with just one small repair to a worm hole as seen in the lower left corner that entered into the figures leg.
