Mt. Fuji & Cherry Blossoms Art Exhibition

10:00am – 5:00pm
¥1,300 (advance sales)

This season, the Yamatane Museum of Art is hosting a special exhibit with famous works depicting two icons of Japan: Mt. Fuji and the cherry blossoms. The Yamatane specializes in nihonga, or Japanese-style painting. It’s one of Tokyo’s best small art museums, with well-curated, seasonal exhibitions throughout the year.

In addition to the special exhibit, this spring the museum is also offering half-price admission for students (from ¥1,000 to ¥500) and seasonal wagashi (Japanese sweets) in the cafe.

The exhibition, Mt. Fuji and Cherry Blossoms: From Hokusai’s Fuji to Togyū’s Cherry Blossoms, includes several famous works from the museum’s collection. Among the highlights are ukiyo-e (woodblock prints) of Mt. Fuji by old masters such as Katsushika Hokusai and Utagawa Hiroshige. You will also have an opportunity to see more recent works of nihonga such as Okumura Togyū’s Cherry Blossoms at Daigo-ji Temple and Yokoyama Taikan’s Mountain Cherry Trees.
