This event has ended.

Spotlighting Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849), the “gakyo” (fanatic painter), who for 70 years from his debut as an ukiyo-e artist at the age of 20 until his death at the age of 90, constantly challenged himself to depict all elements of the universe. In commemoration of the 260th anniversary of his birth, an unprecedented special exhibition will be held at Tokyo Midtown Hall, bringing together every page, every piece, and every image of his masterpieces “Hokusai Manga,” “Thirty-six views of Mt.Fuji,” and “One Hundred views of Mt.Fuji.” This exhibition has been postponed from last year to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and has been renamed “The Complete Hokusai.” It will be an opportunity to encounter, almost to an excessive degree, all the different aspects of the most famous Japanese painter in the world, Katsushika Hokusai.
