Katsushika Hokusai's most important work, "Thirty-six Views of Mt. Fuji"
The theme was the appearance of Mt. Fuji, which changes in appearance depending on the place and time. Initially, it was scheduled to be completed with 36 figures as the name of the work, but because it gained popularity, 10 figures were added and it consisted of a total of 46 figures. (The first 36 figures are called Table Fuji, and the additional 10 figures are called Urafuji.) At the time of the publication of Thirty-Six Views of Mt. Fuji, Hokusai was 72 years old. It is a masterpiece that makes you feel an insatiable desire to create even in old age.
