Mt. Fuji from the Satta Pass
Series; Famous Places in Japan
Fine printing from the respected Tokyo publisher Oedo Mokuhansha - These classic designs were produced by the well known Tokyo publisher Oedo Mokuhansha amidst a resurgence of interest in ukiyo-e. Like many of these traditional businesses, the woodblock print craft was passed down through generations, and the Oedo Mokuhansha company was formed by descendents of an Edo era publisher. These are nice prints of the highest quality standards and an excellent choice if you are looking for fine old woodblock reprints.
Mt. Fuji from the Satta Pass - The Satta Pass was a famous area and an old battleground for military clans in the feudal period. Thus, this area was well known to viewers of Hiroshige prints. Here a group of travelers climbs the dirt road hugging the cliff side, a beautiful view of Fuji and the water beyond. A dramatic composition.
