2021 Netherlands Report

Our director Elise Wessels was recently interviewed by the The Japan Times for the 2021 Netherlands Report. She discussed what we have planned for this year and the future of our collection:


“What message do you have for our readers on the future of the museum?


The core of the collection will be donated to the Rijksmuseum by the end of 2022. The selection of prints consists of major works from the early 20th century. This gift is to ensure these valuable works will have their forever home in a world-renowned museum, available to anyone with an interest in modern Japanese prints. The prints will be an extension of their current collection of Japanese prints, pulling it into the 20th century. However, Nihon no hanga is planning to continue the work we have done for the past eleven years. The collection is still growing and there are many more exhibitions we wish to share with the public in the coming years.”

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!

UPDATE

We know will have to implement a reservation and ticketing system through Eventbrite to ensure a safe visit for you and our staff. Please see our Tickets page for more detailed information on what to expect when we are able to open our doors again.

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.
