Ocean Way of Kazusa
This picture is drawn from the present-day Tokyo Ugara Channel. At a glance, this seems to be a simple picture setting a large ship with wind-filled sails in the center; however, this work is also one of the excellent ones. Hokusai depicts the broadness of the ocean by drawing the horizon in a curve, and the horizon and bay edge far from the tranquil ocean of Kazusa. Furthermore, Mt. Fuji is drawn in the center of the scene, as if there is no other place it should be. This work reminds the viewer of the presence of Mt. Fuji, and expresses Hokusai’s skillful sense as a painter.
