One Hundred Famous Views of Edo

(in Japanese 名所江戸百景 Meisho Edo Hyakkei ) is a series of ukiyo-e prints begun and largely completed by the Japanese artist Hiroshige Utagawa (1797–1858).

The prints were first published in serialized form in 1856–59, with Hiroshige Ⅱ completing the series after Hiroshige's death.

It was tremendously popular and much reprinted.
