Awa Province Naruto Rapids - Utagawa Hiroshige

Curator's notes:

Awa Province Naruto Rapids is a woodblock print created by the Japanese artist Utagawa Hiroshige. The print is part of his series "Famous Places in the Sixty-odd Provinces," which depicts various landscapes and landmarks throughout Japan. The print depicts the Naruto Rapids, a narrow channel of water located in the Awa Province (now known as Tokushima Prefecture) on the island of Shikoku. The rapids are known for their strong currents and were often used as a test of skill for boatmen. The print shows a boat navigating the rapids, with the rocky cliffs and lush vegetation of the surrounding area in the background. Utagawa Hiroshige was known for his detailed and accurate depictions of landscapes and this print is considered one of his masterpieces.
