Hokusai Katsushika (born 1760 in Sumida-ku, Tokyo) was an ukiyoe artist active in the late Edo era.

Hokusai became passionate about painting at an early age, and in his late teens, he became an apprentice to the popular ukiyoe artist Shunsho Katsugawa and became a painter.

His masterpiece is a series of 46 Ukiyoe prints called "Fugaku Sanjurokkei" (Thirty-six views of Mt. Fuji).

With his overwhelming painting ability and outlandish ideas, Hokusai became the most popular artist of his time by depicting various views of Mt. Fuji from various locations throughout the series. 

From these prints, we have selected (1) Koshu Kajikazawa, (2) Gohyakurakanji Sazaido, (3) Yamashita Hakuu, and (4) Kanagawa Okinamiura.

Hokusai is the only Japanese artist named by LIFE magazine as one of the 100 most important world figures of the past millennium.

He has influenced many impressionist painters around the world, including Gauguin, Van Gogh, Cézanne, and Monet. Surprisingly, many Japanese are unaware of this fact.

Do you know about it?
He is truly the world's Hokusai.

There is a famous Japanese folktale called "Urashima Taro". 
The story is about Urashima Taro, who saves a turtle from being bullied by children on the beach. He was then taken to the Ryugujyo, the Dragon's Palace (underwater palace where there is no dragon). There he received entertainment from both Otohime-sama (Princess Otohime) and the underwater sea creatures in return for saving the turtle.
