One Hundred Famous Views of Edo: Jiji-ga-chaya
Painted by Utagawa Hiroshige I 1857 (Ansei 4) Tokyo Shiryō Collection 0511-C31

Jiji-ga-chaya is the name of a teahouse the 3rd Shogun Iemitsu visited during his falconry hunts. There is still a slope named Chaya-zaka spreading from present-day Naka-Meguro, Meguro Ward to around Mita and this seems to have been the location of Jiji-ga-chaya. The place became known because it provided a view of wide-open fields to the west and Mt. Fuji could be seen.
