Special Exhibition "Ships Painted by Hokusai"

Katsushika Hokusai is known around the world as one of the most famous Japanese ukiyoe artists, who left behind a vast number of works during his 70 years of painting. Among his works, plenty of them depict boats, especially the ones transporting fresh fish and vegetables to markets, as well as fishermen struggling in rough seas. The exhibition will feature various materials that will introduce you to ships used in the past, such as a model of a Japanese ship (about 5 pieces), which was indispensable to daily life in the past, as well as a diorama of the \"Funatadeba\" that existed in Kobe at that time, Japanese ship used during the same time when Hokusai was painting ships, and a similar Japanese ship from the museum's collection. Known in these days as Hyogo-tsu, the port of Kobe was constantly used as a base for trade with the Korean Peninsula and the continent, and served as a key point for domestic maritime traffic. The exhibition will also feature the history of the port of Kobe, from before the opening of the port and how it served in daily life after was opened.
