This print, which shows figures traveling along the banks of the Minobu River and, shrouded in mist, Mt. Fuji rising in the distance, is part of Hokusai's best-known and unified series "Thirty-six Views of Mt. Fuji." Prints from this series explore the sacred mountain from all distances, every possible angle and in all seasons. Here, Hokusai has rendered the Minobu River as stylized waves of rolling water. The unusual large horizontal format is a way of dramatizing groups of travelers as characters on a stage-set of natural scenery.
