Deutsch: Foto einer neu geschnittenen Kopie von „Unter der Welle im Meer vor Kanagawa“ (
), bekannt als „Die große Welle“, aus den Farbholzschnitten der 36 Ansichten des Berges Fuji. Obwohl es häufig in der Literatur mit Bezug auf Tsunamis (
) verwendet wird, war dies nicht zwangsläufig der Grundgedanke von

), brandende Wellen auf offenem Meer, bezeichnet.
English: Modern recut copy of The Great Wave off Kanagawa (
), from 36 Views of Mount Fuji, Color woodcut. Although it is often used in tsunami literature, there is no reason to suspect that Hokusai intended it to be interpreted in that way. The waves in this work are sometimes mistakenly referred to as tsunami (
), but they are more accurately called okinami (
), great off-shore waves.
עברית: "הגל הגדול בסמוך לקאנאגאווה" (1832), הדפס עץ מאת האמן היפני קאטסושיקה הוקוסאי. ראשון מבין סדרת ההדפסים "36 מבטים על הר פוג'י" .
日本語: 葛飾北斎による浮世絵版画、富嶽三十六景の中の一枚(Modern recut copy)、「神奈川沖波裏」(Behind the Great Wave at Kanagawa") 。この絵はしばしば「Tsunami(津波)」の文脈で用いられるが、北斎が津波のつもりで描いたという根拠はない。原題は「津波」ではなく「沖波」で ある。
Türkçe: "Kanagawa Okinami Ura" (神奈川沖波裏: Kanagawa büyük dalganın arkası): Hokusai Katsushika (葛飾北斎, d. 1760 - ö. 1849)'nin Ukiyo-e "Fugaku Sanjūrokkei" (富嶽三十六景; Fuji Dağı otuz üç manzarası) serisinden Claude Debussy'nin bundan esinlenerek "La Mer" bestelediği düşünülmektedir.
