100 Views of Tokyo iPhone Case: Kanda

$45.00

Following in the footsteps of ukiyo-e artist Utagawa Hiroshige, illustrator Shinji Tsuchimochi spent 3 years illustrating 100 views of Tokyo. Each view is a unique work of art, inspired by ukiyo-e but produced with a modern sense of whimsy and, sometimes, surrealism.

It’s a Tokyo that the Edo painters never knew, and yet glimpses of old Tokyo still remain. Now, some of those prints have been turned into iPhone cases so that your favorite views of Tokyo can be carried with you at all times.

Shohei Bridge in Kanda

This case features Shinji Tsuchimochi’s depiction of a view from the Shohei Bridge (昌平橋) over the Kanda River. Said to have been originally constructed in the mid 1600s, Shohei Bridge, and the view from it, has been the subject of many ukiyo prints. In this contemporary view, a train passes overhead and an enlarged hand holds a bottle of sake: perhaps an attempt to keep warm in the snow.
