Amida Waterfall on the Kisokaido Road (Kisoji no oku Amidagataki). Japanese Woodblock art print by Katsushika Hokusai.
This scene is Kisoji no oku Amida ga taki ("Amida Waterfall on the Kisokaido Road") from the series Shokoku taki meguri ("Journey to the Waterfalls in All the Provinces"), circa 1832. The name is based on the round hollow of the waterfall, reminiscent of the "round eye" (or perhaps halo) of Amida, Buddha of Boundless Light. A servant at the far left heats a water kettle while two men converse and admire the view from their spectacular vantage point.
