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.

This print depicts a father and his daughter riding on the back of a horse up the cherry-blossom-laden approach to Mt. Kano, a famous mountain on the Boso Peninsula. They seem to be admiring the view of Edo Bay and Mt. Fuji.

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


There are a few slight foxing spots and a small chiri (mulberry bark scraps) at the margin of this print.
