Outline of the event
Fujisawa City Fujisawa Ukiyoe Museum
Fujisawa City has established the Fujisawa City Fujisawa Ukiyo-e Museum, a facility where you can appreciate local materials such as Tokaido Fujisawa-shuku and Enoshima ukiyo-e, with the aim of fostering citizens' attachment to their hometown and contributing to the improvement of citizens' culture. ” has opened. Fujisawa City's collection of ukiyo-e and other materials centered on Enoshima ukiyo-e and other materials inherited from Mr. Fumiaki Wu, former president of Nihon University, in 1980 (Showa 55) to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the city's incorporation. As part of our local materials, we have collected ukiyo-e paintings of Fujisawa-juku and Enoshima, as well as related materials.
Ukiyo-e is a painting that depicts people's lives and social conditions, and developed as a popular culture during the Edo period. Furthermore, at the end of the 19th century, it had a great influence on European painters such as Van Gogh, and is a work of art that has attracted attention from all over the world. Fujisawa was the location of Tokaido Fujisawa-shuku in the Edo period, as well as Seijokoji Temple (Yugyoji Temple), the head temple of the Jishu sect, and is close to Enoshima and Mt. As the entrance to the pilgrimage route, many ukiyo-e paintings rooted in famous places and legends were drawn here.
Fujisawa Ukiyo-e Museum will continue to strive to be a facility that everyone can enjoy and enjoy while communicating and becoming familiar with the local culture. We sincerely look forward to your visit.
