    Porters rushing over the Yui river at Yui Station. This motif is based on a series of Ukiyo-e prints by renowned artist Hiroshige Ando. The fifty-three stations of the Tokaido are famous rest stops along the route between the new capital, Edo (Tokyo), and the old capital, Kyoto. Hiroshige was so inspired by many of these famous views that he created a series of woodblock carvings, one for each of the 53 stops.

    Utagawa Hiroshige or Ando Hiroshige (1797-1858) was a Japanese artist during the 19th century and is considered the last great master of the ukiyo-e movement. His approach was more poetic and ambient than the typical ukiyo-e style, and his innovative compositions were a great influence to Western painters, such as Vincent van Gogh. The term ukiyo-e translates to "pictures of the floating world" and refers to a genre of Japanese art with a wide span of imagery such as kabuki actors, folk tales, landscapes, and even erotica. This movement was critical in forming the Western perception of Japanese art.
