Plan your trip ahead with The Travel Tester Brochure Rack. This week, you can download the flyer of Woodblock Making in Tokyo.

Woodblock printing in Japan (‘Moku-hanga’) is a technique used in the ‘ukiyo-e’ art genre, but it was also used for printing books in the same period. Ukiyo-e flourished in Japan from the 17-19th century. Artists produced woodblock prints and paintings of such subjects as female beauties; kabuki actors and sumo wrestlers; scenes from history and folk tales; travel scenes and landscapes; flora and fauna and erotica. The term translates as “pictures of the floating world”.

In this workshop in the Asakusa neighbourhood, you can try woodblock making in Tokyo yourself.
