Create Ukiyo-e Art at a Woodblock Party

If you're looking for a uniquely traditional Japanese experience, why not join a woodblock printing party? When you think of traditional Japanese paintings, you're actually thinking of ukiyo-e, literally "images of the floating world." Ukiyo-e are often created by carving pictures into wood to create a stamp, and then applying it onto paper.

Mokuhankan, headed by world famous ukiyo-e woodblock printmaker David Bull, offers woodblock printing experiences for only ¥2,000—so if you're a fan of traditional Japanese art, it's a great opportunity to expand your art and souvenir collections and add a little personal touch and memory to your art as well.
