Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji
Pilgrims and visitors at Sazai Hall of Five-hundred Rakan temple in Edo.
Sazaidô or the “Turban-shell Tower” was part of the complex known as the Five Hundred Rakan Temple. Being the highest point in the city it offered panoramic views across Edo (today Tokyo) to Mount Fuji.
The Five Hundred Rankan Temple belongs to the Obaku sect of Zen Buddhism. It was first constructed in Honjo during the Genroku period (1688-1703). Build in three stories, it was a high building at that time, when most houses were only one story. After several reconstructions and relocations, it now stands at Meguro (Tokyo).
