Katsushika Hokusai's astounding creation, Nihonbashi Bridge in Edois one of the prominent woodblock prints from his notorious series, Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji depicting the beauty of Mount Fuji with an occupied front view of the busiest place of Edo. This vivacious print embodies the distant view of the iconic Mount Fuji with the collaboration of a place full of busy people.
Katsushika Hokusai has created this woodblock print portraying the Nihonbashi Bridge which was considered to be the heart of the city of Edo and at the same time the terminal of the country's five main highways. Hokusai has brilliantly highlighted the commercial center and the state of haste amidst the group of people. He has portrayed the blue waterway lined with the warehouses with the backdrop of a distant view of the great Mount Fuji and Edo castle. The bridge is not the highlight of this print as it barely can be seen rather than the chaotic area. Though the name of this print is based on the Nihonbashi Bridge, Hokusai has vibrantly emphasized the commercial axis of Edo as the busy place with an amalgamation of a distant view of Fuji.
