Alongside these traditional folding screens there will be a variety of Edo-period paintings from the likes of Iwasa Matabei and Katsushika Hokusai.
Adult admission to the event is priced at 500 yen.
The Fukui Prefectural Museum of Art is located approximately 20 minutes by bus from the JR Fukui Station, served by the Hokuriku Main Line, the Etsumi-Hoku Line, the Katsuyama Eiheiji Line, the Fukubu Line, and the Mikuni Awara Line.

For those who plan to drive to the venue, it's approximately a 15 minute drive from the Fukui Kita IC on the Hokuriku Expressway. Free parking is available on-site.
