Awa Province, Naruto Rapids
Utagawa Hiroshige (1797 - 1858). Woodblock print from the series Views of Famous Places in the Sixty-odd provinces. Japan, 1855.

Hiroshige was one of the leading print and book designers of the Edo period (1615 - 1868), best known for his landscape compositions. In this print, considered to be the most spectacular design of the series, the swirling waters at Awa crash over the rocks near the shore.

The Victoria and Albert Museum was established to make works of art available to all, and to inspire British designers and manufacturers. Today the V&A's collections span over 5000 years of human creativity, and continue to intrigue, inspire and inform.
