Utagawa Hiroshige III (1843–1894) also known as Andō Tokubei and Gotō Torakichi was a Japanese ukiyo-e artist who was a student of Utagawa Hiroshige also known as Andô Hiroshige (1797 – 1858). In 1867, after Hiroshige II, a fellow pupil of the original Hiroshige, divorced the master's daughter Otatsu, Gotō married her and initially took on the name Hiroshige II as well, but by 1869 he began calling himself Hiroshige III. Hiroshige III worked in the same artistic style as his master, but did not achieve anywhere near the same level of success.
