See and experience Ukiyoe, the art of woodblock printing - Takezasado

【Name of facility】

【Introduction, descriptions, and contents of activities】
The Japanese art of ukiyoe inspired major artists such as James Whistler, Mary Cassat and Claude Monet in the 19th century and has remained a source of fascination for many in the West. At Takezasado, visitors can learn the basics of the three crafts that are combined in the creation of a single ukiyoe print: drawing, woodblock carving, and printing. The center also offers more advanced lectures and demonstrations of ukiyoe printing, but visitors can learn the basics of woodblock printing in either course.
