  • 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 12”x18” (30cm x 45cm) as this was closest to the “chuban” 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

    This famous waterfall is located near the post-station of Agematsu on the Kiso highway, in Shinano province (modern Nagano prefecture). Shinto ascetics undertook the water discipline in the Ono Falls, standing under the icy water and chanting their mantras.

    As we view the falls obliquely from the left, the water appears to bubble upward at the crest before falling downward. Hokusai and his printer created a fantastical atmosphere by contrasting an ominous, darkened sky with light blue coils of thin cloud rising to the right. 

    Art historians have identified the ‘Ono teahouse’ here in the bottom left, and the shrine to Fudō perched on a cliff edge jutting towards the waterfall in the center. 

    It is believed that Hokusai drew some of the "Tour of the Waterfalls" series from his imagination and other references. However, in volume 7 of Hokusai’s Sketches (Hokusai manga, 1817), Hokusai includes an illustration entitled ‘Ono waterfall, Shinano province’, suggesting he may have actually visited this spot himself.
