A Snowy Evening at Kambara Station

Utagawa Hiroshige Japanese

Not on view

Deep snow covers the Kanbara slope in the evening. Fresh snow falling on travelers, houses, trees, and mountains creates a quiet that is broken only by the crunch of footsteps in the snow. This scene is almost entirely imaginary because it rarely snows in this area.
