Active selection in cart:
The foreground contains blooming cherry blossoms trees that festooned along the Mita Aqueduct. Above shows, a pathway lingering up the summit of a replicated Mount Fuji. This mound was built in 1829 as well as other mini mounds to worship the real Fuji. Since Mount Fuji had ruptured 18 times by this time, these mini summits were a safer climb for the adventurous folks. Women were not permitted to climb Fuji because it was believed that the woman’s presence would violate the mountain’s sanctity. Elders and children were also dissuaded from climbing due to their fragile bodies. This picturesque landscape shows three successful people on the top of the mound admiring the real Fuji. Other figures are shown climbing and leisurely meandering below the meadow. Made in: Japan. Date: 1850s. Record ID: chndm_1941-31-310.
