Hokusai's waterfall series, one of the masterpieces which was designed by the artist when he was in his seventies. It is a selection of eight waterfalls altogether located all over Japan.

This print depicts Kirifuki waterfall in Kurakami mountain. It was on the way to Nikko Tosho-Gu and travellers stopped by when they visited the shrines during the Edo period. Hokusai used his unique technique of inflected lines and forms in blue and white to create misty water falling down. It is one of Hokusai's well recognised design.
