Original Fuji, Meguro, No. 25 in One Hundred Famous Views of Edo

Hiroshige

Brooklyn Museum

Brooklyn Museum

Constructed in 1812, this mini-Fuji preceded the one depicted in the previous print by seven years. In short order it earned a reputation for its spectacular setting, far more dramatic than any of the previous replicas of Fuji. It lay along the same bluff as the New Fuji, some five hundred yards farther north. The creation and capitalization of the scenic setting is central to this mini-Fuji, from the pine trees along the path of the artificial mountain to the teahouse benches and the cherry trees at the mound's base. Of all the mini-Fujis of Edo, this was perhaps one of the most popular.
