Focusing on the two major masterpieces “冨嶽三十六景 (Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji)” in the Sumida Hokusai Museum of Art and the phantom picture scroll “隅田川両岸景色図巻 (Scenery on Both Banks of the Sumida River)” which became a hot topic as a rediscovery for the first time in about 100 years at the museum’s opening commemorative exhibition. Approximately 100 popular Hokusai works will be exhibited in one place.

  • ・5 minutes walk from Exit A3 of Ryogoku Station on the Toei Oedo Line
    ・9 minutes walk from the east exit of “Ryogoku Station” on the JR Sobu Line
    ・5 minutes by circular bus in Sumida Ward from the north exit of “Kinshicho Station” on the JR Sobu Line

For the first time, this exhibition has many highlights, such as displaying different versions of “冨嶽三十六景 山下白雨 (Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji – Thunderstorm Beneath the Summit)” side by side, and showing the first public fire bowls using woodblocks such as Hokusai’s Nishiki-e “桜に鷹 (Hawk on cherry blossoms)”.

Through many of Hokusai’s masterpieces, you will be able to enjoy Hokusai’s unique writing power and creativity while introducing the beauty of Japan’s four seasons and the sights around the Sumida River, which has been known as a tourist spot since the Edo period.
