Charms of Minamiboso (44) Hishikawa Moronobu Memorial Museum

(44) 菱川師宣記念館

Hishikawa Moronobu was a painter in the Edo period and is known as the founder of Ukiyoe style.  This municipal art museum located near his birthplace in Kyoan-town is named after him, and focuses on Ukiyoe style paintings. This winter, their special exhibit is titled Edo Gourmet Journal, and shows paintings related to food culture in the Edo period.  This is going to be a fun and rare opportunity to learn about not only art but also lifestyle of people in Edo at that time.
