Great Artworks of Japan: A trip to the Yoshiwara Courtesan District with Hokusai

In 2008 a long-lost scroll by Hokusai was discovered in Paris. It describes both banks of the Sumida River in Tokyo and the journey to the Yoshiwara Courtesan district of old Tokyo by boat. The scroll is Hokusai’s largest work and was purchased at a world record price as the central work of the new Sumida Hokusai Museum in 2016. Painted in 1805, it works almost like a virtual tour of the journey to the Yoshiwara. Join a virtual tour in time and place and visit the Yoshiwara as would have happened in the early 19th Century.
