Tamenobu, Fujikawa (fl. c. 1890-1910) View Works

Tamenobu was a woodblock artist working at the turn of the century. Little is known about this Meiji-period artist. He is best known for a series of prints depicting the travels of Yajirobe and Kitahachi, the popular protagonists of Jippensha Ikku’s Tokaidochu Hizakurige (or Shanks’ Mare). The famous tale, released in two volumes in 1802 and 1822 respectively, follows these comic heroes as they journey from Edo to Kyoto along the Tokaido road.
