Yanaka no yubae, otherwise known as the Sunset Glow in Yanaka is a beautiful woodblock print from 1921. It was originally made by Artist Kawase Hasui and is a part of his Tokyo Junikagetsu (The twelve scenes of Tokyo) collection. It's said he was walking one morning and stumbled across this view of the shrine, to which he needed to recreate it. Beyond that, I couldn't find much but nonetheless is a beautiful piece.
