Turban Shell Hall of the Five Hundred Arhat Temple (Gohyaku Rakan-ji Sazai-do)
Date: ca. 1832
Visitors on the viewing platform of the third story of the Sazaidô are transfixed at the sight of Mt. Fuji rising across the marshes. This design is the cover image of 1998’s Hokusai: Bridging East and West, ed. by Matthi Forrer, but this is an earlier impression than the shown Pulverer example. Early impressions as here have black rather than grey as the colors of the pilgrim’s backpacks. Also, the red publisher’s mark and censor’s seal are present. Series: 36 Views of Mt. Fuji
