Why You Can Now Enjoy Private Ukiyo-e Talks in Tokyo from an Expert Who Lectured at the British Museum

During your ukiyo-e printmaking experience at Takahashi Studio, you can learn about the ukiyo-e production process and art appreciation techniques from Ms. Yukiko Takahashi, the studio's president. I was deeply moved by her explanation during a previous visit. Her insights are incredibly valuable for ukiyo-e enthusiasts. She is a recognized expert who has lectured and demonstrated ukiyo-e at prestigious institutions worldwide, including the British Museum and the Detroit Institute of the Arts. Such specialized commentary, typically aimed at art professionals, is a rare opportunity for travelers.


Ms. Takahashi is also featured on the official website of the British Museum as the ukiyo-e publisher/printer, a place where not many individuals get highlighted. Don’t miss the opportunity to have a private ukiyo-e explanation session with her. Additionally, a video of Ms. Takahashi giving an ukiyo-e lecture to people in the Baltic states, organized by Japan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, is available on YouTube. Please take a look.


Takahashi Studio is an Edo-period woodblock print studio established about 160 years ago. Initially, it was a printer, but later, it also became a publisher.

The Area Around Takahashi Studio: Still a Hub for Japan's Printing Industry


The location of Takahashi Studio has not changed significantly since its founding. Nearby are major companies like Dai Nippon Printing and Toppan Printing, smaller printing-related businesses, and museums like the "Ichigaya Letterpress Factory" and the "Printing Museum, Tokyo." The area around Takahashi Studio is still a hub for Japan's printing industry. Ukiyo-e was also a publication of the Edo period. Because these images depict the lives of the common people who survived, we can learn about the customs of the Edo period today. This is exceptionally valuable even on a global scale.
