Mount Fuji in Japanese Art: A Majestic Icon Through the Ages.

Mount Fuji, or Fuji-san as it is affectionately known in Japan, is an enduring symbol of natural beauty, spiritual significance, and cultural heritage.

This iconic stratovolcano, which stands at 3,776 meters (12,389 feet), holds a special place in Japanese culture and has been immortalized in countless Japanese art prints.

In this exploration, we delve into the profound significance of Mt Fuji in Japanese culture, with a primary focus on its portrayal in the exquisite world of Japanese art, including the renowned ukiyo-e works of Katsushika Hokusai and contemporary artist Ohata.

Mount Fuji in Japanese Culture.

Mount Fuji has been revered in Japan for centuries, earning its status as the nation’s highest and most sacred mountain. It is considered a source of spiritual inspiration and a symbol of Japan itself. Fuji-san’s distinctive shape, often capped with snow, has inspired countless poets, artists, and pilgrims who have sought solace and enlightenment in its shadow. In summary, Mt Fuji stands as a multifaceted symbol of Japan, representing natural beauty, spirituality, artistic inspiration, and cultural identity. Its timeless allure continues to captivate people around the world, making it one of the most iconic and revered landmarks in Japanese culture.

Ukiyo-e, which translates to “pictures of the floating world,” is a genre of Japanese woodblock prints and paintings that flourished during the Edo period (17th to 19th centuries).

It is in this art form that Mount Fuji found a lasting home.

Specifically, we take a look at two great Japanese ukiyo-e artists who created inspiration works of Mount Fuji art.

Hokusai’s “Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji”

Katsushika Hokusai (1760 – 1849), one of Japan’s most celebrated ukiyo-e artists, created his iconic series “Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji” between 1830 and 1833. The series consists of—you guessed it—36 prints that showcase Mount Fuji from various angles, seasons, and vantage points. One of the most famous prints from the series is “The Great Wave off Kanagawa,” which features a towering wave in the foreground and Mount Fuji in the background, a visual masterpiece that has become a global symbol of Japanese art. It is also the most expensive ukiyo-e art sold at auction.

Hokusai’s work in this series was revolutionary in its approach. He depicted the mountain not only as a symbol of tranquility but also as a dynamic force in its own right. Hokusai’s exploration of Mt Fuji in different contexts—from serene landscapes to turbulent seascapes—reflects its multifaceted significance in Japanese culture.

Ogata Gekkō’s “One Hundred Views of Mount Fuji”

Ogata Gekkō (1859 – 1 October 1920), a self-taught artist, known for the series Fuji hyakkei (富士百景) or One Hundred Views of Mount Fuji.

Gekkō’s famous Mt Fuji woodblock print, Ryūshōten (龍昇天)  is shown here and depicts a dragon rising towards the Heavens with Mt Fuji in the background.

Collectively, both Hokusai and  Gekkō’s work have been the inspiration behind The Art of Zen Mount Fuji print series.

While Katsushika Hokusai’s “Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji” remains a cornerstone of Fuji’s artistic legacy, contemporary artists continue to find inspiration in this iconic symbol. Hiroshi Senju, a celebrated contemporary Japanese painter, is one such artist. His work brings a fresh perspective to the enduring allure of Mount Fuji.

Senju’s acclaimed “Waterfall” series is a prime example of his unique approach. In this series, he skillfully blends traditional Japanese techniques with modern abstraction. One standout piece, titled “Waterfall 04-9,” features a dynamic waterfall crashing into a serene pool, with Mount Fuji subtly emerging in the background. The juxtaposition of movement and stillness, vividness and tranquility, captures the mountain’s ever-changing presence.

Senju’s work resonates with viewers by reimagining Mount Fuji in a contemporary context. Through his art, he reminds us that the mountain’s beauty and significance persist, even as Japan embraces modernity.

Senju is not the only contemporary artist drawn to Mount Fuji’s majesty. Artists like Takashi Murakami (see Vogue Japan cover image), renowned for his distinctive style of Superflat art, have also incorporated the mountain into their work. Murakami’s colorful and playful interpretation of Mount Fuji reflects the enduring appeal of this iconic symbol across generations.

In addition, contemporary photographers like Hiroshi Sugimoto have captured Mount Fuji’s essence through the camera lens. Sugimoto’s minimalist photographs, featuring the mountain in its serene glory, evoke a sense of timelessness and reverence.
