Object description

The Hōei eruption of Mount Fuji started on 16 December 1707 and ended about 1 January 1708 during the Edo period. Today the crater of the main eruption can be visited from the Fujinomiya or Gotemba Trails on Mount Fuji. Hokusai's One Hundred Views of Mount Fuji includes an image of the small crater at a secondary eruption site on the southwestern slope. This was called Mount Hōei, because the eruption occurred in the fourth year of Hōei.
