poster for The Sumida Hokusai Museum

Katsushika Hokusai, a world-renowned ukiyo-e artist, was born in Honjo-Wari-Gesui (presently the Kamezawa area in Sumida Ward, Tokyo) in 1760 and spent almost the entire 90 years of his life in Sumida Ward where he created a large number of masterpieces. In honor of this outstanding artist whom many local citizens are truly proud of, the Sumida Hokusai Museum was opened as a base to invigorate the local community and contribute to the region’s industry and tourism. The collection features an exhibit of his life and the relationship between Hokusai and Sumida through high-definition real-size replicas of representative works and related episodes. In addition, special exhibitions of the results of research and studies on Hokusai and Sumida will be held in the gallery. Moreover, the museum will conduct a broad range of activities aimed at disseminating a wealth of information by holding seminars, lectures, and workshops. Through these activities, the museum hopes to relay information about Hokusai and Sumida both at home and abroad, with the aim of enhancing the appeal of both.
