Description:

Marks refers to this publisher as Iida Kunitarō while most other sources say it is Doi Sadaichi. That is probably because Doi published this image first.

"The Yotsuya appraoch was part of Edo castle. Originally constructed i the mid-15th century the castle (also known as Chiyoda castle) was greatly expanded by the first Tokugawa shoguns. It developed as the headquarters fo the shogunate. Badly damaged by fire in the 1860's today it is the site of the Imperial palace."

Quoted from: Kawase Hasui: The Complete Woodblocks, vol. 1, p. 91. Illustrated in color in vol. 2, p. 426.
