Hokusai Ukiyo-e Print, Umegawa in Sagami Province
Mount Fuji (Fuji-san) is the highest mountain in Japan at 12,388 ft. Along with Mount Tate and Mount Haku, it is one of Japan’s “Three Holy Mountains”. An active volcano that last erupted in 1707–08, Mount Fuji is just west of Tokyo, and can be seen on a clear day. Mount Fuji’s exceptionally symmetrical cone is a well-known symbol of Japan and it is frequently depicted in art and photographs, as well as visited by sightseers and climbers.
While Hokusai’s Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji is the most famous ukiyo-e series to focus on Mount Fuji, there are several other series with the same subject, including Hiroshige’s Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji and Hokusai’s own later series One Hundred Views of Mount Fuji.
