About This Print

Takahashi has given us at least five views of Mt. Fuji in this print and, possibly, 25 if we take the print's title literally.  Wonderful embossing throughout and a barely visible reflection of Fuji in the upper right of the bottom margin (see detail views below.)

Detail of embossing.
The embossing makes it appear as though Fuji is erupting.
