Original Fuji, Meguro - Terrific scene of visitors enjoying the blossoming cherry trees and the spectacular view of Mt. Fuji in the distance from Meguro. The pine covered bluff in the foreground was a replica of Mt. Fuji built a few years before the "New Fuji" also pictured in this series. The scenic area was popular with Edoites, and here, a few men climb the miniature mountain while others gather at tea stand beneath the flowering trees. An attractive design, nicely composed and colored.
