Edo Meisho Zue - Illustrated Guide to Famous Places of Edo


Here's a little something I found today -- a walk-through of scenes in Edo Meisho Zue 江戸名所図会 with scans of the original work, accompanied by photos of the same places today. The illustrations in the link are by the famed illustrator Hasegawa Settan 長谷川雪旦 (1778-1843). An brief description of the Edo Meisho Zue can be read here (in Japanese).
