The late Dr. Matsui Hideo’s ukiyo-e (Japanese wood-block print) collection is regarded as one of the finest in all Japan. The collection contains around 2,400 prints, including some of the finest examples from the masters of the craft including Utamuro, Eisen and, of course, Katushika Hokusai. Since the home of the collection – the Koioshikawa Ukiyo-e Museum – closed in 2014, this will be the last chance to see many of the excellent works contained within. See the landscapes of Hokusai – including his famous “Great Wave off Kanagawa” and “Thirty-six views of Mt. Fuji” – Eisen’s beautiful women and Utamaro’s expressive figures, amongst many more.
