"Bankoku Jinbutsu Zu" or "People of Many Nations" is a famous series of Japanese woodblock prints created by artist Utagawa Yoshitora in the mid-19th century. The prints depict people from different countries and cultures, including Japan, China, Korea, Europe, Africa, and the Americas, each wearing their traditional clothing and engaging in daily activities.

The series is significant for several reasons. First, it reflects the growing interest in other cultures and the increasing globalization of Japan during the Edo period. Japan had been largely isolated from the rest of the world for centuries, but by the mid-19th century, it had opened up to foreign trade and diplomatic relations, which brought a flood of new ideas and influences.

Second, the print is notable for its technical skill and artistic quality. Utagawa Yoshitora was a member of the Utagawa school, one of the most influential and respected schools of ukiyo-e woodblock printing. The print showcases his mastery of the medium, with its intricate details, vibrant colors, and careful composition.
