Shin-hanga which means new prints was an art movement in early 20th-century Japan, during the Taishō (1912 – 26) and Shōwa (1926 – 89) periods. The movement flourished from around 1915 to 1942, though it resumed briefly from 1946 through the 1950s.

In the Westernization of Japan during the Meiji Period (1868 – 1912) ukiyo-e after Kobayashi Kiyochika gradually declined. Shin hanga printmakers worked within the ukiyo-e framework that revitalized traditional ukiyo-e art rooted in the Edo and Meiji periods (17th–19th century). The artist was designing the prints, which got then passed on to artisan carvers and printers employed by a print publisher. The most famous publisher of Shin Hanga Prints was Watanabe Shozaburo.

Inspired by European Impressionism, the artists incorporated Western elements such as the effects of light and the expression of individual moods but focused on strictly traditional themes of landscapes (fukeiga), famous places (meishō), beautiful women (bijinga), kabuki actors (yakusha-e), and birds-and-flowers (kachō-e). Naturalistic light, shade, textures and perspective are tools to show the tranquillity of human-nature coexistence. Seasons (early spring, midsummer, cherry blossom…), the time of day (full moon, morning mist…) and weather conditions (temple in snow or after rain…) mark the prints also temporally specific.

Shin hanga artists included several artists, each known for their favourite subjects: Hashiguchi Goyo, for his portraits of women, Ito Shinsui, for his portraits of women and landscapes, Yamamura Koka and Ohta Masamitsu (1892 – 1867) for his portraits of Kabuki actors, Ohara Koson for his bird and plant prints, and Kawase Hasui and Hiroshi Yoshida for thier landscapes. Kawase Hasui and Hiroshi Yoshida probably have been the two most popular Shing-hanga artists, who focused on urban or rural landscapes.
