Between the red-flowering bushes, a group of travelers crest the hill in the foreground and Mount Zozu rises from the clouds. Meaning “elephant head,” Mount Zozu took its name from its shape: the curve the mountain marked the forehead, slopping down to the trunk. The grey roofs of Kotohiragu Shrine peek out from the trees on the mountainside and form the closed eye of a sleeping elephant. Dedicated to guardian deities of fishermen and sailors, Kotohiragu, affectionally known as “Konpira-san,” was a popular pilgrimage site during the Edo Period. Hiroshige alludes to this popularity with the crowded path in the foreground. Today, the former Sanuki Province corresponds with Kagawa Prefecture.
