Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji
Mishima Pass in Kai Province
Kai Province was a province of Japan in the area of Japan that is today Yamanashi Prefecture.
The image shows the Mt. Fuji seen across the Mishima pass. Three travelers with their arms stretched out as if to measure the circumference of a gigantic tree. The exact location of Mishima Pass is uncertain. It is speculated that it may be Kagosaka Pass, or this print may be one of Hokusai’s fictitious views of Fuji.
