From 1820 to 1832 he created the landscapes and "bird and flower" prints which are considered by many as his greatest works. Hokusai had done landscapes before but in 1823 he started his series on the 36 views of Mt. Fuji. In this series, Hokusai created a series of prints that had an effect on the western impressionists and the standard for Japanese woodblock prints.

In contrast, Kamehameha seemed to have done less to prepare Liholiho as his successor.

Thus, setting up ‘interment camps’ to hold the Japanese for the duration of the war. Mr. Korematsu did not follow suit and decided to stay home in the state of California. The upholding of Korematsu’s conviction by the Supreme Court showed not only how threatened the country felt about Japanese immigrants but also put into question how equal everyone truly was in America.
