JAPAN BLUE


 JAPAN BLUE 

-- Indigo Colour --

 

 The famous Edo period Ukiyo-e master Andō Hiroshige, best known for his landscapes, made great use of the different shades of indigo to vividly depict the scenery of Japan. 

At that time, people from other countries were impressed with Japanese scenery filled with indigo blue. Indigo became one of the important colours to describe Japan now.
