Ukiyo-e mostly depicts subjects of the pleasurable yet fleeting “ukiyo” (real world), such as popular kabuki actors and courtesans, as well as famous sites crowded with people. However, the real world is not the only subject of ukiyo-e. In some ukiyo-e paintings, landscapes of worlds which are completely different to those of the world we live in and characters from these worlds are featured. This exhibition will guide you through the various worlds depicted in ukiyo-e paintings with three themes – specters, the spiritual world, and foreign countries. Enjoy encounters in these unreal worlds.
