A long time ago when Tokyo was called Edo,
Nihonbashi was a center of Edo.
Many Ukiyo-e artists such as Hiroshige, Hokusai, Hasui have made Nihonbashi a subject for woodblock print (Ukiyo-e). But, in these latter days, it was covered with steel reinforced concrete.
Tatuharu drew a picture of the real Nihonbashi that found artistry in such a scenery. And, His design become the modern times Ukiyo-e through Shokunins (Super Technicians) taking over traditional woodblock print technic since Edo period.
