Katsushika Hokusai Exhibition is going on.
Katsushika Hokusai(葛飾北斎) exhibition is being held in Kyoto History and Culture Museum until 25th March as this year is 250th year anniversary of the birth of him.
If you know him, I am happy. He is a legend of Ukiyoe-artist, well-known in over the world for Thirty-six Views of Mt. Fuji (冨嶽三十六景). The one below is one of pictures of it. Its view is from Kanagawa offshore. Every picture of him is very vivid and has uplifting feeling. Once you see it, you can never forget it.
