Updated: May 22

We have secured placements for our printmaking experience flyers at two of Tokyo's leading ukiyo-e museums, the Ota Memorial Museum of Art and the Sumida Hokusai Museum. We are deeply grateful to both museums for this opportunity. Please take a look at our flyers when you visit these museums to view ukiyo-e.

Enhance Your Understanding of Ukiyo-e Through a Printmaking Experience at the Takahashi Studio


Viewing ukiyo-e at the museums and participating in a printmaking experience at Takahashi Kobo (Studio) before or after can significantly enhance your understanding of ukiyo-e. The experience is not just about making prints; it also includes explanations about viewing techniques and the ukiyo-e production process. Additionally, you can use your own prints to create fans, and book covers to take home as souvenirs. Moreover, you can select an original ukiyo-e print created by an artisan to take home as a souvenir. Experiencing ukiyo-e in these various ways will surely become a lifelong memory.

Introducing the Ota Memorial Museum of Art and the Sumida Hokusai Museum


Allow me to briefly introduce the Ota Memorial Museum of Art and the Sumida Hokusai Museum.

The Ota Memorial Museum of Art was established to make the ukiyo-e collection gathered by Mr. Seizo Ota (1893–1977), the president of Toho Life Insurance Mutual Company, accessible to a wider audience. After approximately two years of displaying ukiyo-e at the former Toho Life headquarters building in Ginza, the museum officially opened in 1980 at its current location in Jingumae, Shibuya, Tokyo.


The Ota Memorial Museum's collection includes about 12,000 pieces of ukiyo-e, making it one of the world's foremost private collections of ukiyo-e. The museum is conveniently located just a 3-minute walk from JR Harajuku Station, and it is very accessible. I highly recommend visiting the Ota Memorial Museum.

The Sumida Hokusai Museum, which opened in 2016, is a newer establishment. It is located in Kamezawa, Sumida Ward, where the ukiyo-e artist Katsushika Hokusai lived for many years, making it a municipal museum of Sumida Ward. The museum not only introduces works by Hokusai and his students but also communicates the connections between Hokusai, Sumida, and various other topics through exhibitions and other outreach projects. It serves as a hub for local revitalization, contributing to lifelong learning for residents, tourism, and industry, and acts as a venue for information exchange and interaction both domestically and internationally.


The museum's holdings include significant collections such as the Peter Morse Collection, with about 600 items, and the Narasaki Muneshige Collection, with about 480 items. The stylish Sumida Hokusai Museum was designed by the renowned architect Kazuyo Sejima. It is conveniently located a 5-minute walk from Ryogoku Station on the Toei Oedo Line and a 9-minute walk from Ryogoku Station on the JR Sobu Line. I highly recommend visiting the Sumida Hokusai Museum.
