目黒元不二 Meguro Moto-Fuji

A024

The Original Fuji in Meguro.

Fuji replica erected in 1812 was at 12 m (39 ft) the tallest in Edo; this print was incorrectly placed in the spring section of the table of contents since the depicted cherry trees are in autumn foliage; spelling of “Fuji” in the title as (, lit. “not two”) is thought to be a pun on the doubling of the mountain.(1857.4)
