Japanese Boat


Flat bottom boats are an historical tradition in Japan. Modifications of the basic design producted boats that cold be used by seaweed gatherers, cargo and transport or as water taxis. The largest cargo boats of this type were 40 feet long and weighed 80 tons.

This print is taken from the expedition report of the famous US government expedition that 'opened up' Japan to the West. That expedition was led by Commodore Mathew C. Perry in 1852, 1853 and 1854. The 1857 published report was heavily illustrated with sepia toned, stone lithograph plates and widely distributed. Today, these prints are occasionally offered for sale by antiquarian book and print dealers. Resolution is 1423 x 1123 pixels, 300 dpi for the digital file available for commercial license.
