Description
 
Twelve images of Hokusai's famous woodblock series called "The Fifty-Three Stations of the Tokaido" which chronicles stops along the road from Tokyo to Kyoto in the Meiji Period. Framed in red and beautifully printed - a great gift item for anyone interested in ukiyo-e (Japanese woodblock prints).

Just under 20" square (50cm) and 100% cotton. New, not vintage.

Furoshiki are traditional Japanese wrapping cloths, used even today when presenting gifts! And yes, the recipient keeps the furoshiki.

By the way, furoshiki comes from furo, which means bath in Japanese and shiki, which is something that is spread on the ground. Long ago, furoshiki were used to carry clothes to and from the public bath and were spread on the bath house floor to stand on while changing.
