About the Art

This is the second depiction of a scene at the Arayu Spa by Hasui. Instead of capturing seasonal scenery, he depicts a morning scene this time.

Though a small resort, the spa offers a magnificent view of the mountains, one that Hasui was able to see through the open doors of his guesthouse at the break of dawn. The orange tones on the mountain show the color of the morning. As an early riser, Hasui captures his privileged view of the sun coming up over the mountains.
