Ukiyo-e seems to be booming these days. Speaking of Ukiyo-e, Mt. Fuji, Enoshima, Daishi Kawasaki and Seki of Hakone ... are all in Kanagawa prefecture! When I thought about it, I searched and found the Fujisawa Ukiyo-e Museum in Fujisawa City.
5 minutes walk from JR Tsujido station. Moreover, admission is free. I have to go for this!

* The original scenery of Kanagawa prefecture drawn in Ukiyo-e is also introduced here >>

The area around the north exit of Tsujido Station has been well-maintained due to a large-scale redevelopment, so the sidewalk is wide and easy to walk. We arrived at "Coco Terrace Shonan", which houses the Ukiyo-e Museum, in an instant as we strolled past a fashionable shopping mall and felt like a stroll.
First, take the elevator to the 7th floor.

The exhibition currently being held is "The scene of Hiroshige's first, second and third generations-from Edo to Meiji-" (until July 15, 2019).
Speaking of Hiroshige Utagawa, the author of the famous "Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido". As a matter of course, he draws many views of the current Fujisawa city such as Fujisawa inn, Enoshima, Shichirigahama.
By the way, the first Hiroshige was already in the late Tokugawa period, so the second and third generations were active during the conversion period from Edo to the Meiji era. It feels a little strange to think that Ukiyo-e was drawn even in such turbulent times.

The mainstream of ukiyo-e is people and customs, and it seems that only the group of Hiroshige and others established the style of "landscape painting" that we think of today and actively drawn it. Ukiyo-e is different from the “drawing” that depicts a landscape in a realistic way, but the work that is said to have been drawn after actually visiting the site and burning the landscape into the eyes has a unique appeal.

In the video corner, visit the spots in Fujisawa city depicted in Ukiyo-e, You can see the "Fujisawa Enoshima Ukiyoe Famous Place Tour" that is verified against the current landscape. Bold deformation is a charm unique to Ukiyo-e, and the landscape of the town itself has changed significantly between the times of Hiroshige and the present. Even so, when I visit the scenery that was the stage again, it is interesting because there is a part where I feel "I see."
This is a must-see!

"Only Utamaru and Hokusai are famous, but in reality, as many ukiyo-e artists as there were stars were active in the same era. Since we collect ukiyo-e from the perspective of" local history, " I think you can enjoy a wide range of Ukiyo-e world, regardless of name or name. ''
Said Ryosuke Masuda, a curator.

As the facility is compact, you can fully appreciate each point. After all, it's free, so it's nice to be able to feel free to drop by during the walk.

<Bonus Information>
There is a "Fujisawa City Art Space" on the floor just below the Ukiyo-e Museum, so I recommend this too!

Currently, "Observation Eyes-Ikimono and Nature drawn by Shonan illustrator" is being held (until June 16).
The works of the two Shonan-based illustrators are beautiful, cute, funny, and a little scary ... very unique. This is also free to see, so please take a look!

Fujisawa City is a facility where you can appreciate local materials such as Ukiyo-e of Tokaido Fujisawa-juku and Enoshima, for the purpose of fostering citizens' attachment to the local area and contributing to the improvement of their culture. Was opened. In 1980 (Showa 55), Fujisawa City's collection of ukiyo-e materials centered on Enoshima Ukiyo-e, etc., which was given to Mr. Kure Fumiaki Kure Fumiaki, the former president of Nihon University, to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the city system. , As part of the local materials, we have collected Ukiyo-e and related materials on Fujisawa-juku and Enoshima.

Ukiyo-e is a painting that depicts people's lives and social conditions, and developed as a common culture of the Edo period. Furthermore, at the end of the 19th century, it had a great influence on European painters such as Van Gogh, and it is a work of art attracting attention from all over the world. The area of Fujisawa, where the Tokaido Fujisawa inn was located in the Edo era, and Togiso Sohonzan Jyokko-ji Temple (Yugyo-ji Temple), is located in Enoshima and Oyama (Amauriyama Afuriyama), which were places of worship and leisure. As the entrance to the pilgrimage route, many Ukiyo-e paintings rooted in famous places and legends were drawn.

The Fujisawa Ukiyo-e Museum will continue to strive to become a facility where you can continue to enjoy and enjoy the familiarity of local culture. We look forward to your visit.
