This guided walking will show you some famous landmarks of the celebrated 18th and 19th century ukiyo-e movement. All-you-can-eat sushi is included.
Meet at 9:30am at Tobu Asakusa station. Your guide will take you first to Seikyoji, a small local shrine, and the final resting place of Katsushika Hokusai, and his wife and daughter. Having paid your respects, your guide will then take you by foot and by metro to Ryogoku Bridge, a famous site associated with the Ukiyo-e artists. Here is the location of Hokusai’s famous print, “Sunset across the Ryōgoku bridge from the bank of the Sumida River at Onmayagashi,” No. 12 from Thirty-six views of Mount Fuji, and also Utagawa Hiroshige’s “Ryogoku Bridge and the Great Riverbank,” No. 59 from his series One Hundred Views of Edo.
For lunch, you will be taken to an all-you-can-eat sushi restaurant. Once you’ve eaten your fill, your guide will escort you to the final stop of the walking tour, the Sumida Hokusai Museum, a small museum dedicated to Hokusai’s life and work. It houses a permanent collection of his artwork, and you can also try out some drawing in the style of Hokusai yourself.
