Hokusai's 'Great Wave' to feature on new Japanese banknotes
Famous woodblock print "The Great Wave off Kanagawa" will feature on a Japanese banknote for the first time, in one of three new designs unveiled Tuesday by the country's finance ministry.
Hokusai's well-known image, which depicts a huge wave in waters by Mount Fuji, is set to appear on the new 1,000-yen (about $9) bill from 2024. The note's design also features a portrait of the Nobel Prize-nominated bacteriologist Shibasaburo Kitasato on its reverse.
