In “Drum Bridge at Kameido Tenjin Shrine,” Hokusai portrays a recognizable bridge in Edo with tangible materiality. Likely inspired by Chinese “moon bridges,” the drum bridge got its name from the full circle formed when it reflected in the water. As Hokusai places the viewer hovering above the roofs on the right bank, this vantage point highlights both the dramatic curvature of the bridge’s namesake, and the structural elements that made it possible. As shrine visitors cross overhead, the viewer can see the details of the bridge's construction just beneath their feet. Other impressions of this print can be found in institutions such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, British Museum, Minneapolis Institute of Art, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
