Together with "The Grat Wave of Kanawaga" (picture 1) and "South Wind, Clear Sky" (picture 2) it forms a trio of masterpieces.

The print depicts Mount Fuji in its simplest form. The volcano’s snowcapped peak rises into a clear sky over low clouds , while at its feet a storm breaks. The thunderstorm indicates the beginning of a sudden shower, symbolizing the promise of an abundant harvest.
