Ukiyoe Wood Printing Experience in Kyoto

The art of Japanese woodblock printing has fascinated the world since its birth in the 17th century. 

Ukiyo-e exalts the beauty of females, as well as extols the majesty of nature. This art form used to celebrate a hedonistic floating world, while serving as a reminder for the transience of life

Savor the intricacies of how woodblock printing disregards dimension and depth when creating graphics. Witness the boldness in accentuating shapes and colors when ink is transferred onto paper.

The time has come for you to hold the legacy of Ukiyo-e in your hands. Immerse in the elegant experience of creating your personal woodblock print, and go home with an authentic masterpiece.
