One Hundred Famous Views of Edo is a series of Ukiyo-e prints begun and largely completed by the Japanese artist Utagawa Hiroshige (1797–1858).

Kinryūzan Temple in Asakusa is a woodblock print by the Japanese Ukiyo-e artist Utagawa Hiroshige. It was published sometime between 1856 and 1857 in the late Edo period as Hiroshige's series One Hundred Famous Views of Edo.

A bright winter scene at the entrance to Asakusa Kannon, the oldest and most venerable Buddhist temple in the city. The temple, which was founded in the year 628, was also a major entertainment center, with many movie houses (in the twentieth century) and vaudeville theaters located nearby. This bright red and white print was chosen to start the winter season, with snowflakes drifting down from the gray sky, showing texture on the rooftops and in a pattern of small embossed dots on the ground. On the left side is a portion of the famous Kaminarimon, or Thunder Gate, and a huge lantern above.
