Hokusai Ukiyo-e and Immersive Experience

About the tour

Hokusai (1760-1849) is one of the greatest Ukiyo-e (woodblock prints) artists in Japan. His “Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji” are particularly popular. His works also became known among artists in France and gave a significant influence to the impressionists at that time. In this digital art exhibition, all forty six views of Mt. Fuji prints are digitally recreated in super fine resolutions (2 Billion pixels). Ukiyo-e are very susceptible to light so original printings are only on display at limited times. But this digital technology gives us more chances to enjoy beautiful Ukiyo-e. In this tour, you can also enjoy an “immersive experience”, where you feel as if you were in the raging ocean waves. (This tour is made possible by the great support by NTT InterCommunication Center, Tokyo, Japan)
