View Mt.Fuji from Lake Motosu

Would you know what is printed on the reverse side of one thousand yen notes (or old five thousand yen notes[used from 1984 to 2007])?
If you have it now, please check it on.

You are able to see Mt.Fuji & its inverted reflection on the surface of the lake on it. The reflection is called "Sakasa Fuji 逆さ富士."

The image is made on the model of a picture which was taken at the edge of Lake Motosu 本栖湖 by KŌYŌ OKADA 岡田紅陽 (1895-1972) and is called "Kohan no Haru (Spring by the lake) 湖畔の春".
