There must a lot of people who like to enjoy art works in the autumn.

In this article, I will introduce to you MOSHI MOSHI NIPPON’S recommended art exhibitions in Tokyo.

Even those of you who don’t go to museums or art galleries often can enjoy these exhibitions.



National Museum of Western Art “Hokusai to Japonisum” (Ueno)


Hokusai Katsuhika is one of the most famous “ukiyoe” (Japanese art form established in Edo period) artists of the latter Edo period. His works influenced artists in almost all Western counties and various genres such as carving and garnish craft.

The exhibition which will be held at the museum is the first exhibition to introduce the works of Hokusai from the viewpoint of “Japonism.” You can compare the works of Hokusai, Monet, Degas and Gauguin and confirm the influence that Hokusai exerted on Western artists.
