About the Art

Situated in Nikko, an area with several waterfalls and many sacred temples, pilgrims and tourists would stop to enjoy these falls and refresh weary legs on their way to the Toshugu Shrine.

One group of travelers look upward in awe, dwarfed by the falls, while another more adventurous group make the arduous climb to explore the water's origin.

In this print, Hokusai chooses to animate the waterfall with the spirit of a tree's roots. While the deep Berlin Blue pigment is in sharp contrast to the backdrop, the waterfall seems to merge with the rocks and vegetation, flowing through them with a sense of "oneness".

The water descends about 30 meters in two steps, each about 10 meters wide, and as it falls, the water breaks upon the craggy rockface and creates a misty spray that cools the air.
