This triptych of woodblock prints shows the emperor, empress, prince, and ladies of the court enjoying the cherry blossoms at a Western-style building in Tokyo's Ueno Park. The women wear high fashion French-style dresses of the day, with high collars and bustles. First printed in 1887, this image represents a turning point in woodblock subject matter from traditional Japanese scenes to those that reflect the new aesthetic of modernization and western influence.

The perfect gift for jigsaw puzzlers, and fans of Woodblocks and Japanese Art, this traditional adult wooden jigsaw puzzle can be done time and again. Our puzzle artists have included many shaped whimsy puzzle pieces that match the style of the image, and we have integrated them in ways that will delight and surprise you as you put the puzzle 
together.
