Arts & Performances

Kyoto is a birth place of traditional arts, crafts and performances of Japan,
and has been maintaining its tradition with the coming of the new age.
Here GTK'd like to introduce the monthly art highlights, museums, creators etc.

OBAKE UKIYO-E Exhibition

At the end of the Edo period, people enjoyed talking about ghost stories. Their interest in “Obake”, monsters or apparitions, increased.
Some of the ghost stories such as “Yotsuya-kaidan” and “Sarayashiki” were performed in Kabuki performance and depicted on Ukiyo-e, wood-block printings.
This exhibition will display about 100 Obake Ukiyo-e, which were created by famous Ukiyo-e artists, Hokusai, Hiroshige, Kuniyoshi etc.
