Nihonbashi Bridge on Snow Morning
"Nihonbashi" literally means Japanese bridge and it is the famous bridge in the centre of Edo (now Tokyo). This picture is a woodblock print in the ukiyo-e style and is one of a series "One Hunred Views of Edo" created in the 19th century by Hiroshige Ando. Van Gogh copied two of this series: Flowering Plum Tree and Bridge in the Rain.
