Mint set of Angel's "Hiroshige" cards, with designs based upon paintings made by the famous 19th century Japanese artist, Utagawa Hiroshige, of landscapes he observed while on his first trip traveling from Edo (Tokyo) to Kyoto. These prints came to be known as "The 53 Stations of the Tokaido," and the subject became so popular in Japan that Hiroshige would ultimately create some 30 different series of woodcut prints on it.
The deck has the 52 suited cards, plus 3 Jokers, plus an insert card in Japanese and English that describes the deck. The cards are bridge size, measuring 89mm x 58mm, and come in a hard plastic box that fits inside a cardboard box.
The cards are mint, and the card boxes are “as new.”
