Explore the ‘floating worlds’ of Japan through woodblock prints from the Edo period (1615-1868).

The style of prints on display is known as Ukiyo-e, which means ‘pictures of the floating world’. Ukiyo-e prints show pleasurable activities in beautiful surroundings and often have deeper meanings.

Guided by haiku poetry, the exhibition invites visitors to mindfully experience the sights of 19th-century Japan. Explore the city of Edo (now called Tokyo), visit the Kabuki theatre, watch fireworks and peek into private spaces. To get some air, take a stroll through the Japanese countryside, see the sea or climb high into the mountains.
