Ukiyo-e (浮世絵 literally "pictures of the floating world") is a genre of Japanese woodblock prints (or woodcuts) and paintings produced between the 17th and the 20th centuries, featuring motifs of landscapes, tales from history, the theatre, and pleasure quarters. It is the main artistic genre of woodblock printing in Japan.

東海道五十三次(とうかいどうごじゅうさんつぎ)は、江戸時代に整備された五街道の一つ、東海道にある53の宿場を指す。古来、道中には風光明媚な場所や有名な名所旧跡が多く、浮世絵や和歌・俳句の題材にもしばしば取り上げられた。なお五十三次と称す場合は京都までの場合であり、さらに大阪までを加えて東海道五十七次とする説 [1][2]もある。また、奈良時代の律令制による東海道では、延喜式によると、伊勢の鈴鹿駅から常陸の雄醍(おさか)駅まで55駅が設置されている。
