Ukiyoe painter. He learned the painting technique from Kano School and Tosa School, and also had an interest in the western -style copperplate prints such as Shiba Kokan’s, which means his learning objects were free of rules. He also had a talent in the autograph other than the prints, giving an impact on the impressionists.

"Thirty-six Views of Mt. Fuji" is one of Hokusai's representative artworks in the background of people's growing belief in Mt. Fuji. Despite "Sanjurokkei"(36 views of Mt. Fuji), the real number of views is 46. The feature of this artwork is indigo printed as well as people's daily life depicted in front of landscapes. The composition is also original. This artwork is still attracting a lot of people until now.
