In 1928 eight woodblock artists working in the sōsaku-hanga (creative prints) mode embarked on a subscription series titled “100 Views of New Tokyo” (Shin Tokyo Hyakkei). Over a period of four years, each artist contributed 12 to 13 views. While many subjects overlap with Koizumi Kishio’s parallel series initiated in 1928, aspects of the new Tokyo were depicted that Koizumi had ignored.
