Ukiyo-e flourished during the Edo period, mainly among the general public. The genre’s artistic value is now widely recognized within Japan and overseas. This museum has an accomplished ukiyo-e collection in terms of both quantity and quality. It encompasses works from the early period through to the Meiji period. These include bird and flower prints by Utagawa Hiroshige and multicolor nishiki-e prints depicting the Satsuma Rebellion of 1877.
