  • 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

    "Sazai Hall - Temple of Five Hundred Rakan" is a print from Hokusai's majestic 36 Views of Mount Fuji series. This print shows a bucolic scene, with a motley group standing upon the veranda outside the temple.

    The Temple of Five Hundred Rakan was established at the Kameido village (in today's Tokyo Prefecture) in 1695. Sazai means a turban shell, referring to the spiral-shaped corridor of the hall.

    When people finished their climb up the spiral corridor, they would be rewarded with a panorama of the lazy Sumida River and a distant Mt.Fuji.

    The nine figures each have their own character: whether languidly looking out, mopping their brow or jumping and pointing a finger towards Fuji in exclamation. 

    These fellow pilgrims represent all the world: the geisha, the samurai, children and merchants alike. 

    Before them lies the wetland, rolling out towards the horizon in the distance. As we look at the backs of the figures in front of us, we feel as though we are another, slighty more reserved observer.

    Hokusai uses Western perspective techniques, placing Mt Fuji at the vanishing point on the horizon. Also identifiable are the lumber yards of Fukagawa.
