Good display of a full set of one of Hiroshige's finest sets of wood block prints, following the Tokaido Road from Tokyo to Kyoto. There are also opportunities to try creating prints yourself, and examples of the process used by Hiroshige.

A small museum and collection of Hiroshige's block prints; along with other artists. The introductions and majority of the displays have English information. There's also a nice display of the steps of block printing and how many blocks are necessary for each coloration. A bonus...More

What I love when I travel is to find great small museums and galleries. Not the ones that take all day to look through or that you need to line up behind 500 people just to get in. Just the small gems which offer something...More
