The Scenes of Last Tokyo series, a collaboration between nine of the leading Japanese print artists of the time, was published in 1945, shortly after the end of World War II. The series shows nostalgic views of fifteen famous places in Tokyo as they were before wartime air raids destroyed much of the city.
