A special exhibition taking place at the Osaka Ukiyoe Museum looks at the works of various ukiyo-e artists, with a defined focus on Katsushika Hokusai and Hiroshige Utagawa. Their art was said to be loved by big names in the art world, including the likes of Vincent Van Gogh, Claude Monet, Edgar Degas and Paul Gauguin - it is even noted that many of these acclaimed artists were inspired by ukiyo-e pieces in their own creations.
The exhibition will showcase around 60 ukiyo-e prints in total, primarily from Hokusai and Hiroshige. Adult admission to the event is priced at 1000 yen.
The Osaka Ukiyoe Museum is located around five minutes on foot from the No. 6 exit of Shinsaibashi Station, served by the Osaka Metro's Midosuji Line, or around seven minutes on foot from Namba Station, served by the Osaka Metro's Midosuji Line, Sennichimae Line, and Yotsubashi Line.
There is no dedicated parking lot at the museum, so patrons are advised to utilize public transport whenever possible.
