Hokusai’s “Fugaku Sanjurokkei" (Thirty-six views of Mt. Fuji) was a huge hit at the time, and the popular prints were reprinted many times.
Seeing the popularity of the work, the publisher commissioned Hokusai to add ten more paintings to the series.
This is the reason why there are actually 46 pictures in the “Fugaku Sanjurokkei” even though the title says 36 views.

In order to convey the charm of Hokusai's work, our hotel features two floors dedicated to his works.

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. Here in this Hokusai Room 2, we have chosen (1) Bishu-Fujimihara (2) Sunshu-Ejiri (3) Gaihu-Kaisei and (4) Kanagawa Okinamiura as center pieces for the series.

The high-speed boats are tossed about by the rough seas, are they risking their lives to bring in the first bonito? 

The first bonito are traded at a high price, so they must be the first to arrive at their destination port. 

It makes you want to cheer for the crew who are rowing the oars against the rough waves.
What would you do when you see the Big Wave?

As you see on the special paintings on your room window, the strong wind has blown away their hats, the Sandogasa.
