New red Fuji

Winter

As the old copies of mount Fuji were mainly created as touristic attractions or amusement spots, the sacred mountain still inspires the creation of city parks and playgrounds.

Notes

The Sumida Hokusai Museum, in the background of the image, is a museum dedicated to the ukiyo-e artist Katsushika Hokusai, commonly referred to as Hokusai. His most well-known works include The Great Wave off Kanagawa and Red Fuji, which are a couple of prints from the collection Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji. The museum was opened in November 2016 in Tokyo’s Sumida Ward where Hokusai was born and where he spent most of his life.
