Through the ellipse formed by a large wooden tub under construction, we glimpse the tiny triangle of Mt Fuji on the distant horizon. The barrel-maker planes the wood intently, oblivious to the view – he can see it any day. As so often in his pictures, Hokusai celebrates the application and skill of people at work. Fujimigahara (‘Fuji View moor’) was on the road from Nagoya to the Atsuta shrine. It is now part of Fujimichō in the centre of Nagoya.
