Monthly Changes of Japanese Street Scenes
Calendar for 1905


Hasegawa, T. (Takejiro)
Monthly Changes of Japanese Street Scenes, Calendar for 1905, Tokyo (Honmura, Yotsuya), Meiji 37 (1904), 12mo (5 1/2 x 7 1/2 in - 13.9 x 19.2 cm), large size for a Hasegawa book, calendar published in a book form, 14 folded crepe paper pages, 28 pages total including covers. The page inside the front cover is blank. The next page contains the title and a listing by month and subject of the woodblock prints for the 12 monthly calendars. Each calendar woodblock print is viewed as a continuous image from the left hand side of page across to the adjoining right hand side page.

The subjects of the woodblocks are:

  1. January - "Merry Outdoor and Indoor Scenes on New Year's Day"
  2. February - "A Lone Traveler in the Snow"
  3. March - "Pilgrims Among the Buddhist Temples in the Vernal Equinox"
  4. April - "Picnic Under the Cherry Blossoms"
  5. May - "Paper Carp and Flags for the Boys Festival"
  6. June - "Rice Planting"
  7. July - "The Boat Excursion on the Nakagawa River"
  8. August - "A Couple Avoiding the Heat of Summer in the Mountain Inn"
  9. September - "Evening Scenes on a Bay"
  10. October - "Farmers After the Autumn Harvest"
  11. November - "Autumnal Tints Among the Mountains"
  12. December - "Outdoor and Indoor Scenes on the Last Day of the Year"

In his discussion of T. Hasegawa publications, Frederic A. Sharf notes a calendar book published in 1899 titled Street Scenes Calendar and gives the year for the calendar as 1901. Apparently Hasegawa printed calendars for 1901, 1902 and 1905 (probably other years also) and used the same general theme (street scenes).

Hasegawa published a smaller size calendar for 1905 with the title of The Landscapes of Tokyo. Information on that calendar is found here.
