Ukiyo-e and Fashion in the Edo Period August 30, 2016 – September 25, 2016
This one was my first time in Tokyo ever. Afterwards I had the chance to visit there two more times. My first trip to Tokyo was with Nur. We visited the national museum close to the Ueno Park. I was impressed to see the works from Kuniyoshi and Kunisada.
