The image is the no.37 of "ukiyo-e" print series titled "Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji".                                                                   





Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji (富嶽三十六景 Fugaku Sanjūrokkei) is a series of landscape prints created by the Japanese ukiyo-e artist Hokusai (1760?1849). The series depicts Mount Fuji from different locations and in various seasons and weather conditions. The original thirty-six prints were so popular that Hokusai expanded the series by ten.







                         

"Ukiyo-e" or "浮世絵" is a genre of woodblock prints and paintings that flourished in Japan from the 17th through 19th centuries.                                                             "Ukiyo-e" or "浮世絵" had been manufactured through

a collaborative system (the hanmoto system) where the artist, carver, printer, and publisher engaged in division of labor.
