Exhibition Concept

This exhibition focuses on two masterpieces in the Sumida Hokusai Museum collection, 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’s wealth of delights also includes two remarkable sights, both being exhibited for the first time: three different versions of Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji: Rainstorm Beneath the Summit displayed side by side and a brazier made from the woodblocks for Hawk and Cherry Blossoms and other prints. We hope that, through the wealth of Hokusai masterpieces on display, you will enjoy experiencing Japan’s beauty throughout the four seasons, famous places on the Sumida River, famed as sightseeing destinations since the Edo period, and Hokusai’s peerless brushwork and creative power.
