See Ukiyo-e at Sumida Hokusai Museum
The Great Wave off Kanagawa is one of the most iconic pieces of Japanese art, and Katsushika Hokusai is the man behind the work.
Sumida Hokusai Museum すみだ北斎美術館 will guide you through the art of ukiyo-e 浮世絵, which are woodblock prints featuring images ranging from natural scenes to kabuki actors.
The museum itself is a modern affair with interactive digital exhibits that allow you to explore Hokusai’s work, and there are also exhibits offering full-sized replicas of Hokusai and his many studios.
Entrance is 400 yen, and it’s open Tuesday to Sunday from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm.
