Super Ukiyo-e: The Edo Code

¥1,600 (on the door)

“Super Ukiyo-e: The Edo Code” is ukiyo-e like you’ve never seen before. Enjoy some 20,000 ukiyo-e prints by master artists in high-res digital form. These images are the best of the best: coming from the Spaulding Collection in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and other top-class galleries. Special video technology blows up and animates some of the most famous works for a 3D effect. Immerse yourself in the world of ukiyo-e as it shows you Edo-era fashion, kabuki, and the old city’s dark streets, where ghosts and monsters tend to appear.

The exhibit is a short walk from Exit 6 of Kayabacho Station. Adult tickets (high school students and up) are 1,600 yen and children’s (over age 3 through middle school) are 1,000 yen. You can also buy tickets ahead of time at Lawson’s or Loppi in Ministops.

Note: the exhibition closes at 11 pm the day before a national holiday and 7 pm on national holidays.
