The Sumida Hokusai Museum opened in 2016 in Sumida City, Tokyo. This museum is dedicated to the famous artist Katsushika Hokusai. Hokusai’s art is in the style of ukiyo-e, a Japanese genre of art that translates to “pictures of the floating world.”
The museum has a permanent exhibition featuring high-resolution replicas of Hokusai’s art with touch panels and multilingual information about his life and work. The four-storey museum is a piece of art in itself, a remarkable example of modern architecture designed by the Japanese architect Sejima Kazuyo. It also has a museum shop and a library offering books on Japanese art, especially ukiyo-e.
