Those are Hiroshige's ukiyo-e. Picture 1 is from the series of the Sixty-nine Stations of the Kiso Kaidō, and the rest are from the series of the Fifty-three Stations of the Tōkaidō. The upper translations are the literal translation of what's written there, and the latter ones are the title used in the Wikipedia pages.

Picture 1
