Ota Memorial Museum of Art

The Ota Memorial Museum of Art specializes in Ukiyo-e prints. Ukiyoe is a popular art form that developed among ordinary people from the Edo period to the Meiji period, and had a great influence on European painters in the 19th century. Ukiyo-e is well known worldwide for its multi-colored woodblock prints by artists such as Hokusai Katsushika, Hiroshige Utagawa, and Sharaku Toshusai.

The Ota Memorial Museum of Art has a collection of about 15,000 works, including woodblock prints and handwritten paintings. The collection is well-balanced and covers a wide range of genres of Ukiyo-e, and is also known for its excellent state of preservation.

The museum exhibits around 100 Ukiyo-e works from its collection. There is no permanent exhibition, and the works are changed every month, so visitors will be able to discover something new no matter how many times they visit. The museum introduces the diverse appeal of Ukiyo-e through special exhibitions held from various perspectives.
