Exhibition Concept

This exhibition will focus on two masterpieces, Hokusai’s Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji series and the long-lost Scenery on Both Banks of the Sumida River picture scroll, whose rediscovery, after a century, when our museum opened caused a sensation. They are part of about a hundred widely admired works by Hokusai on display. This exhibition will also include, for the first time, two different versions of Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji: Rainstorm Beneath the Summit displayed side by side. With several other works on exhibit for the first time as well, this exhibition offers a wealth of delights. It introduces Japan’s beauty throughout the four seasons and famous places along the Sumida River, famed as sightseeing destinations since the Edo period. Composed of works depicted with Hokusai’s peerless brushwork and creative power, this exhibition is a rare opportunity to savor the Edo ambience along the Sumida River.
