The series "36 Views of Mount Fuji" is maybe the best-known and most popular example of Japanese woodblock prints worldwide. This page is a complete illustrated list of the first 36 designs of the series.

First Publication: April 2009
Latest Update: April 2014

36 Views of Mount Fuji by Hokusai Katsushika

When Hokusai (1760-1849) started this series in 1830 he was seventy years old and at the peak of his creativity and artistic vigor. Each of the designs show the sacred Mount Fuji - either very visible or sometimes as a small detail in the background. The series is a landmark in Japanese woodblock printmaking of the 19th century.

The series was published over 5 years by Nishimuraya Yohachi. The series of 36 designs was later expanded by another 10 designs that are not shown on this page. Then the production of new designs was stopped for unknown reasons.

About the Images

Original sheets from this series are very expensive today. One print usually costs a 5-digit amount in USD or EURO - depending on condition. Although we have sold a few original prints from this series in the past, we have no copyright-free access to all 36 views in good condition images. Therefore we show you on this page reproductions in fresh colors. The number of reproductions from of this series is maybe one or several thousand times higher than the originals

The images were taken from our archive of sold objects - with the exception of the number 10 and 20 (from Wikipedia).
