A snow capped Mt Fuji looms over the small station town of Funatsu. Located near Lake Kawaguchi, a part of the Fuji Five Lakes, the scene is particularly quiet and still. The sacred mountain has been a common motif throughout Japan’s artistic history. Hiroshi’s depiction of it here is exemplary of the shin-hanga style of the early Showa period (1926-1989), rendered with a keen attention to realism and light.
