(1760-1849)
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. As explained by Matthi Forrer (1991), earlier impressions have black rather than grey as the colors of the pilgrim’s backpacks, and the lower area next to the man dressed in dark blue is black rather than grey. Also, the red publisher’s mark and censor’s seal are present. From “36 Views of Mount Fuji”.
