Ukiyo-e Ota Memorial Museum of Art

1-10-10 Jingumae, Tokyo, 150-0001

Ukiyo-e woodblock prints, a uniquely Japanese art form, are the focus of this niche museum collection, bequethed by the estate of Seizo Ota, the late chairman of a major Japanese insurance company. Prints in the 12,000-piece collection date back over 200 years and include several masterpieces of the style, including pieces by Hiroshige and the iconic Great Wave off the Coast of Kanagawa by Katsushika Hokusai. Housed in a free-standing brick building in Jingumae, the museum is small but comprehensive, spread over three floors and including rotating exhibits.
