27. Umezawa in Sagami Province


Umezawa was the place at the skirts of Mt. Fuji. In the landscape picture, only the five birds was added to set off the whole image. Sagami Province located on today’s Kanagawa Prefecture.


Blue Mt. Fuji and the red-crowned cranes, the mist hangs over. The pale pink of the mist represents it is the moment before the daybreak.


Japanese people think both of Mt. Fuji and a crane bring good fortune. So the Hokusai‘s  ukiyo-e is a happy woodblock printing.
