Dive into the world of ukiyo-e woodblock prints!
The Hiroshige Museum of Art, Ena opened in September 2001 with the goal of exhibiting, collecting, and storing ukiyo-e woodblock art pieces – especially the pieces created by famous Edo-period printer Hiroshige Utagawa (1797-1858).
The museum houses around 500 woodblock prints and is especially known for the “Kisokaido Rokujukyu-tsugi Nouchi” collection by Hiroshige Utagawa that were donated by local collector Haruo Tanaka.
After viewing the exhibits, learn about the process in which ukiyo-e are created and try your hand at making some yourself!
