Shinshu Obuse (Obuse, Kamitakai District, Nagano Prefecture), where Hokusai often visited. In 1842, when Hokusai was 83 years old, he visited Obuse at the first time. He was protected by Kozan Takai, a wealthy local farmer and merchant, and was given a studio. Their relationship was so close that they called each other "Sensei" and "Dan-sama". Hokusai left his masterpiece in a very blessed environment. In 1844, he created the Higashimachi Festival float ceiling paintings "Dragon" and "Phoenix", and in the following year, 1845, the Uemachi Festival float ceiling paintings "Kanmachi Festival Cart Masculine Waves" and "Menamizu", and in 1847 at the age of 88, he created the ceiling painting "Phoenix" in the main hall of Iwamatsu-in. Hokusai wished for his own progress in his paintings without losing his passion for painting even in his old age. His Hokusai culmination blossomed in Obuse. Based on the "Kanmachi Festival Cart Masculine Waves" from the Hokusai Museum (general incorporated foundation Hokusaikan) in Obuse, the ceiling painting of the Uemachi Festival Cart Masculine Waves was reproduced on silk as an interior, divided into four parts, and framed.
