Mt. Fuji has, since ancient times, long inspired many painters, because its magnificent image has long been worshipped all over Japan. When Mt. Fuji is tinted red by the sun’s rays, the image is called “Aka-Fuji” (Red Mt. Fuji). This superb view, which is rarely seen by most people, has long been considered a very lucky symbol.
“Kōhaku” means a combination of red and white colors. Kōhaku is thought to be a good omen. Therefore, the national flag of Japan is a white rectangular flag with a large red circle (representing the sun) in the center.
This is a painting of Red Mt. Fuji and Kōhaku Plum Blossoms by Shūhō Inoue. He expresses the Mt. Fuji’s beauty and the happy atmosphere of kōhaku plum blossoms very well. We can feel an auspicious atmosphere from this work.
