Mt. Daisen is a volcanic mountain located in Tottori Prefecture, the “Chuugoku” Region of Japan. It is the highest in the Chuugoku region with an elevation of 1,729 meters. The name Daisen means “big mountain.” Mt. Daisen was chosen as the third greatest summits in Japan behind Mt. Fuji and Mt. Yari (Yarigatake) at “The Japanese Greatest Summits Ranking” held by Japan’s national public broadcasting organization (NHK). The number of climbers of Mt. Daisen in August 2010 was 11,900.
Mt. Daisen has been regarded as a god itself since the ancient Yayoi era, and one of the most important mountains for Japanese “Shugendou.” Climbing the mountain used to be severely prohibited until the Edo period. As a result, Mt. Daisen boasts the largest beech forest in western Japan.
In this work, the vivid blue color is very impressive. We can almost feel refreshed by the unclouded blue sky in this painting. The mountain covered with snow is depicted with “gofun” (white pigment). The contrast between blue and white is very beautiful. Takuji Yoshimura makes the best use of the material “iwa-enogu” (mineral pigment).
