  • Capturing the beauty of the original artwork

    Every one of our prints is made using the Giclee printing process, for a museum-quality look and feel that does justice to the original art.

    Giclee printing is the gold-standard for preserving the meticulous detail and stunning colors that we love in the Japanese masters. All our prints are fade and fingerprint resistant, so you can enjoy their beauty for years to come.

    We chose to offer 12โ€x18โ€ (30cm x 45cm) as this was closest to the โ€œchubanโ€ size sheets used for woodblock prints historically.

    All of our prints come with matte finish for a more authentic appearance.

    Framing Options:

    • Unframed
    • Framed - black
    • Canvas wrap

    Ready-to-Hang and Made to Last

    Mounting brackets are included and centered on our framed prints and canvas wraps.

    All of our prints are made to last, with fade-resistant colors and materials. See how they arrive in the unboxing videos below.

  • About the Art

    Asakusa Hongan-ji Temple in the Eastern Capital Edo - by Hokusai

    This print is part of Hokusai's landmark woodblock print series: Thirty Six Views of Mount Fuji. Here, Hokusai captures a stunning view of Mount Fuji from the elaborately decorated Tsukiji Hongan-ji temple in Tokyo.

    We look down from the temple over Old Edo. The elevation is such that most of the city is shrouded in cloud, while the temple rears up out of the mist to rival Mount Fuji and provide some visual symmetry.

    A kite escapes from the rows of houses below into clear air.

    The temple is a Jodo Shinshu Buddhist temple with a rather unfortunate history, having burned down twice. Established in 1617 in Asakusa, it was lost in a fire 40 years later.

    It was then rebuilt and moved to a new location in Edo (Tokyo). Hokusai immortalized it in this print, but it would be destroyed again in 1923 by the Great Kanto eartquake and require a third incarnation.

    The replacement temple has stood in Tokyo since 1934.
