A view of Mt. Fuji through the valley overlooking Lake Suwa in Shinano province, present-day Nagano prefecture. A special feature of this print is the wood grain stretching through the light blue colour of the water. It evokes the feeling of movement in the lake and gives the print a tactile quality.
