Hasegawa Settan (長谷川雪旦,[1] 1778–1843)[2] was a Japanese artist who lived during the late Edo period, born in Edo.

His given name was Munehide (宗秀), and his art-name was Gengakusai Ichiyōsai (巌岳斎 一陽庵). He was commonly called Gotō Uzaemon (後藤右衛門). He was originally a wood sculptor and he carved the woodblocks for many ukiyo-e prints. The Edo meisho zue, an illustrated catalogue of the sights of Edo for which he provided in the woodcuts, is one of his major works.[2][3][4] For his artistic accomplishments, Hasegawa Settan was awarded the honorary Buddhist title Hokkyō (法橋 "Bridge of the Dharma").[citation needed]
