Place:

Date:
between 1820 and 1824
Scope and Contents:
The Tōkaidō was the road extending from Edo (Tokyo) to Kyoto and passing through the provinces bordering on the Pacific Ocean. The map is a bird's-eye view of the region. It is decorated with sketches of houses, fields, boats, and so forth.
Biographical / Historical:
The painter and printmaker Hokusai was known by his principal gō (nom de plume) from 1797 to 1820; by Katsushika from ca. 1807 to 1824; and by Taitō from 1811 to 1820. "Katsushika zen Hokusai" is translated to mean "Katsushika known previously as Hokusai." The date of the map is suggested, therefore, to be between 1820 and 1824.

The document is a street map that shows Nagasaki, nearby topological features, and foreign ships in the harbor. Also shown is Deshima and the Chinese settlement. The map is oriented to the northwest. Included is a table that shows distances by land and sea to various places in Japan from Nagasaki.
Biographical / Historical:
The print is signed Onata Bunjiyemon, whose trade name was Toshimaya (also known as Bunkindō). He was a well known publisher for Nagasaki prints ca. 1770s-1790s. C. R. Boxer, in Jan Compagnie in Japan, The Hague, 1936, states that "the next oldest Toshimaya print which can be dated with certainty is a map of Nagasaki published in Annei 7 or 1778. The colors which predominate are yellow, greyish blue and black. The inscription on the left hand bottom corner includes a table of distances in ʹriʹ by land and sea to various places in Japan." He goes on to describe the map of which NAA manuscript 7157 is a print.
