Japan was forever changed by the opening of Yokohama to trade with foreign countries. To satisfy the great Japanese curiosity about the foreign settlement in Yokohama, a great number of woodblock prints were published. These prints came to be called Yokohama-e: depicting the new port town, people from foreign lands with their novel forms of dress and entertainments, modern forms of transportation, etc.
Yoshikazu probably used illustrations from popular newspapers in America and London as reference for drawing foreign scenes and people. He created an unsual nightscene with a paddle-wheel steamboat in the background.
Framed in acid-free mats and ultraviolet-filtering Plexiglas.
