'With Hokusai's famous Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji in mind, Hiroshi made his own series titled, "Ten Views of Fuji" to show the majestic beauty of Japan's highest mountain. In the series, the large-sized 'First Light of The Sun' and mid-sized 'Lake Kawaguchi', are the masterpieces of the group and noted for their great technical precision.' - A Japanese Legacy, The Minneapolis Institute of Arts; pg. 50.
