Lit. Eight views of Kanazawa. Eight scenic spots around Kanazawa, the southern part of Kuraki vNJ in Sagami province (modern Kanagawa prefecture), which were popular with Edoites as destinations for pleasure excursions, particularly from the late 17c onward. The idea of choosing eight views is in the tradition of *hakkei i. The eight views of Kanagawa are: Hirakata no rakugan (Descending Geese at Hirakata), Otsutomo no kihan 䃋A (Returning Sails at Otsutomo), Suzaki no seiran B萰 (Clearing Mist at Suzaki), Nojima no sekishou 쓇[ (Sunset Glow at Nojima), Seto no shuugetsu ˏH (Autumn Moon at Seto), Koizumi no yau J (Night Rain at Koizumi), Shoumyou no banshou ̖ӏ (Evening Bell at Shoumyou), and Uchikawa no bosetsu (Evening Snow at Uchikawa). The eight views of Kanazawa were illustrated primarily by *ukiyo-e G artists including Utagawa Hiroshige ̐Ld (also known as Andou Hiroshige, 1797-1858) and Katsushika Hokusai k (1760-1849) in both paintings and woodblock prints.
