Koyo Okada came from a family of painters and caligraphists. Since his visit to the small village Oshino near Moujnt Fuji he became fascinated by the mountain and decided to dedicate his work depicting it. As early as 1927 he published his first book with one hundred views of the famous mountain and many followed. In WWII he lost his entire negative archive and equipment which encouraged him all the more to record the mountain on film. Some of his images have been used on stamps and banknotes.
