Japanese Haikus

Katsushika Hokusai was a Japanese artist who famously depicted Mount Fuji in his 36 woodblock prints.  The series shows Mount Fuji in differing seasons and weather conditions from a variety of different places and distances.

The collection actually consists of 46 prints created between 1826 and 1833. The first 36 were included in the original publication and, due to their popularity, ten more were added afterwards.

We looked at the images and created some haiku for them.  We still have a few to do, but here we are being creative.

Here are our finished haikus:

    Hokusai will say so surely... :)
