||It is Asakusa on a snowy day in the late Edo period and early Meiji period.
Asakusa has a legend that a local fisherman picked up a Kannon statue in the Sumida River during the time of Empress Suiko in the 7th century.
Historically, the name Asakusa first appeared in the late Heian period, and there is a record that a carpenter in Asakusa, Musashi Province, was picked up to build Tsurugaoka Hachimangu.
After Ieyasu Tokugawa opened the shogunate in Edo, the Asakusa area prospered as a downtown area of Edo.
Especially after the big fire of the Meireki, Shin-Yoshiwara moved to the side of Asakusa, and in the late Edo period, Kabuki theaters were gathered in Asakusa Saruwakacho, and the Asakusa area became more and more lively.
In addition, many rice wholesalers who were millionaires lived in this area, and it seems that it has developed as a playground for millionaires.
Pigeons are depicted in this picture, and in Japan the pigeon has long been regarded as the messenger of Hachiman God.
The pigeon is now also a symbol of peace. It is an unusual composition in which chickens and pigeons perch on the branches of a tree and overlook Sensoji Temple in the distance, perhaps to survive the cold snow on the ground.
