Description: After the great success of "Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido," Hiroshige's next large-scale series of landscape paintings was "Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji," picking up the theme so successfully treated by his senior Hokusai.


It was the last of Hiroshige's major works, and he passed away before it was (posthumously) published in 1876. Although some of his landscapes depict the same locations as Hokusai's series, the nicely balanced composition and color tones in the vertical format give the work a sense of season, poetry, and a calm impression.

Miho Peninsula is located in Shimizu, Shizuoka Prefecture, and the pine (matsu) forest that stretches for about 5 km along the coast is called Miho Matsubara (Miho pine forest). This print sets a scene of a peaceful end of the day with boats sailing back and the sky turning slightly orange. Ukiyo-e prints were not just a source of information for people to get a sense of what all those sights looked like, it had to be aesthetically pleasing. The choice of the color of the sky might not be the most realistic, but it definitely is interesting.

This particular print is a reproduction by Adachi company published in 1998.
