Comments - Lovely springtime view of Mt. Fuji from Lake Kawaguchi, the scene framed by delicate pink cherry blossoms. The water shimmers with colorful reflections, reflecting the cool tones of the snow-covered peak and the darker greens and blues of the foliage and water. A beautiful shin-hanga design. A contemporary of Hasui, Koichi Okada is best-known for his striking views of Mt Fuji. A terrific choice for display, considered one of Koichi's best subjects.
