    Hiroshige’s Views of Mount Fuji

    In this snow scene, the outer wall of Edo Castle, now the Imperial palace, rises from the moat. On the left side, then a shore-line, what one would see today is Hibiya-dori, with its high rise buildings, including the Imperial Hotel. Sukiya itself is now laid out in small streets alongside Ginza.
