Urashima Taro, Kaguya Hime, Momotaro and other tales are as beloved by many today as they were long ago. These tales, frequently depicted in ukiyo-e art, made the people of the time laugh and cry and surprised them. This exhibit introduces ukiyo-e art created primarily during the Edo and Meiji Periods.
