It is a ukiyo-e print depicting the people climbing the mountain, not in a distant view as other artworks of the series.

 

“Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji” is now a famous landscape painting with the theme of Mt. Fuji. But when the pictures were sold in Edo Period, the publisher Nishimura-ya Yohachi intended to follow the trend of Shinto sect dedicated to the worship of Mt. Fuji

 

The pilgrims climbing the mountain path with the canes, sitting down as exhausted, and resting in the cave are depicted.
