The Great Edo Almanac

Art, Traditional Events

Sumida Hokusai Museum’s latest exhibition introduces Edo life by exploring the annual events of the historic period. The Great Edo Almanac focuses on traditional events and seasonal customs from the Edo period, using artworks by the great master Hokusai to give an intimate sense of life and culture at the time. Exhibition highlights include “The Red Demon Queller,” whose image was used to ward off plagues and the Chinese tale of Kiku Jido, which became associated with yearly Chrysanthemum festivals.

The museum asks for visitor cooperation to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
