At the beginning of the Meiji era in 1872, the steam operated train was just introduced in Japan. It ran from Tokyo Shinbashi to Yokohama Port, passing through the present Ukiyo-e of the Takanawa Hill in Shinagawa. It witnessed the acceptance of Western advanced technology after the Japan Meiji reform. Steam powered trains use mechanical power to transport people and goods at high speed and over long distance. The Ukiyo-e painting of Takanawa steam train by the last Ukiyo-e painter Utagawa Kuniteru not only reflects the local scenery and architecture of the Takanawa (now Shinagawa) of more than 140 years ago, but also the gentlemen and ladies in Eastern clothing style and the labor dressing of the lower class from the Meiji reform. Furthermore, the street has pedestrians from different society classes using traffic such as manpower carts, human rickshaws and horse carriages, thus showing the clothing and transporting styles of different classes. The steaming trains of modern railways drove the passenger towards the direction of Tokyo. The scenes of these spatiotemporal backgrounds, characters and technology are preserved by Kuniteru Master's painting through using the Ukiyo-e colorful woodcut watermarking technique, which is vivid and possessed historical value.
