Coming soon: Memories of Shōwa

Even if we do not know when we will be able to open up to the public, we have been working hard on our next exhibition: Memories of Shōwa: Impressions of Working Life by Wada Sanzō. This exhibition consists of the impressive series ‘Japanese vocations of the Shōwa era in pictures’ by Wada Sanzō (1883-1967) and will feature all three volumes. These prints offer nostalgic and modern images of everyday life in Japan during the late 1930s through to the early 1950s. Together with Wada’s written observations, this exhibition provides a deeply personal account of the continuously changing professions during this complex era of modern Japanese history.

Keep an eye on our website and socials for any updates regarding our future opening times. Unfortunately we are unable to give any dates at this moment, but we hope to welcome you to Nihon no hanga very soon!

New look

Our new website is up and running! Do you like our new look? We have added a new gallery of our collection with an exciting selection. We hope to expand the versatility of our website with this new format, especially during these trying times when everyone can use a daily dose of Japanese woodblock prints. Follow us on social media for a steady flow of works from our collection.

Unfortunately we will not be able to open the museum until further notice. Nihon no hanga is located in an old canal house. All museums need to adhere to a detailed and strict museum protocol, which is impossible for us to follow. Our priority is the health safety of our visitors and volunteers.

We do hope to open our doors this coming November and as always we will keep you posted of any new developments.
