Sunshu Ejiri by Hokusai

Sunshu Ejiri is one of the 36 views of Mt. Fuji woodblock print by Katsushika Hokusai.

Along with Ejiritsu and Shimizu Minato in the south, Ejiri-juku was an important transportation hub on the Tokaido. A strong wind was blowing on the highway, and people were crouching and holding their hats so they wouldn't be blown away.

The strong wind robs the kaishi from the bosom of the hooded woman, and many of them are blown high into the sky.
It seems that the hat is leading the kaishi.I draw the wind that I can't see directly.

Fuji is calm.Is the contrast between motion and stillness an attempt to express the smallness of human beings who are shaken by the strong wind?At the end of the road you can see the white water surface of Ubagaike Pond.
