About the activity provider

This is the only museum in the world that features a permanent exhibition of Kamigata Ukiyoe, or Kamigata woodblock prints. Kamigata Ukiyoe were printed and sold in Kamigata―which is what the Osaka-Kyoto region was commonly called during the Edo Period (1603-1868). The Kamigata region, which in those days had a much longer tradition of art and culture behind it than did Edo area (present-day Tokyo), created woodblock prints which were quite different from those of the Edo area. They were much more realistic, tending to express the true personalities of their subjects, especially of the great Kabuki actors of the day. The Kamigata Ukiyoe Museum has some 50 works in its permanent exhibition.
