Hiking Mt. FujiMikie Watanabe | Cultural Adaptation
The three most famous masterpiece prints you might find as a souvenir postcard are: “Under the Wave off Kanagawa (The Great Wave)”, “South Wind, Clear Sky (Red Fuji)”and “Rainstorm Beneath the Summit”. Since it was a very popular art work at that time, Hokusai was supposed to only complete with 36 works but he added 10 more for a total of 46.
Since Fuji-san has been loved by Japanese people for a long time, you can find art featuring Fuji-san in your daily life in Japan. Fuji-san is often painted on the walls of Japanese public baths called Sento. Did you know Fuji-san is also printed on the ¥1,000 bill?
