(Sansuiga) Landscape painting:
painting) is a genre of the picture which developed in China. san means yama (mountains), sui means mizu(river), ga means
a picture. The style of landscape painting tried to create a
reproduction of real scenery, but there is much "created scenery" "image
scenery" which constituted scenery elements such as the mountains /
trees / rocks / rivers to enhance the realism of the scene.
Although Japanese scenery paintings were influenced by Chinese art
there was not a word for "Fukeiga (the
Chinese word for Fukei or
scenery)". The development of the landscape picture assumed a natural
view of the scene and was called "a landscape painting". However, while
taking in such techniques, a lot of Japanese painters of landscape base
their images on a sense of beauty , Wabi Sabi-a harmonious setting and
design, rather than the conventional Chinese landscape image.

Ichi no Otaki Waterfall Sansui ga 'fishing
for Unagi on a summer evening'
A emotive and well detailed scene by scroll artist Kouzan painted late
20th century. Capturing the waterfall Ichi No Otaki (also see Ichi No

lamps of the hut glowing and the reflection of the moonlight in the
great waterfall up in the mountains. This reminded me of Angel Falls.
