  • I've long been a fan of Ukiyo-e, and this museum was absolutely fantastic for me! They run a looping video that walks through the process end-to-end, and have many prints on view (I seem to remember around 130 at the time I was there in 2014). It's great to be able to get up close to these beautiful works, as well as see a fairly broad array of artists represented. If you're going to Matsumoto, you shouldn't miss this.
  • Very cool museum, an excellent themed exhibition with perfectly translated English descriptions for the entire exhibit.
