The repetition and rhyme of shapes and colors in the foreground and background make this one of the most unified, handsome designs in the series. The triangular shape formed by the fishing lines, the fisherman's arched back, and the promontory from which he fishes echoes that of Fuji on the horizon.

The visual relationship between man in the foreground and nature in the background is enhanced by the deep Berlin blue coloration Hokusai gave to the fisherman's jacket, the apex of the shoreline in the foreground, and the summit of Fuji. The first impression of this print features the indigo technique; the number of colors was increased in later impressions.

Woodblock Printing

400 years of Ukiyo-e

Our collection of traditional and contemporary ukiyo-e prints is created using the same traditional techniques that have been used for centuries.

The woodblock is made from the wild mountain cherry tree which has very hard-grain. It is the best material for the woodcut printing which is often used for mass production.

Echizen Washi

Traditional Japanese Paper

This paper is made from 100% paper-mulberry pulp in Echizen Washi Village with 1500 years of tradition of producing Echizen Paper.

It is highly durable and an ideal material for Japanese traditional woodcut prints which requires multiple layers of color in its printing process. It also brings vivid and warm colors which is one of the charms of Japanese traditional woodcut prints.
