The collection contains about 1,400 works, mainly masterpieces such as Hiroshige’s representative works “Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido” (Hoeido version), the “Plum Garden at Kameido” from the “One Hundred Famous Views of Edo” – famous for being copied by Vincent Van Gogh, and one of only a few prints in the world of “Nakatsugawa (Ame no kei / Ame no Nakatsugawa)” from the “Sixty-nine Stations on the Kisokaido” series.

Aside from the large and small exhibition rooms for curated exhibits, there is a permanent exhibition space where one can learn the basics about Ukiyo-e, as well as a Ukiyo-e themed printing corner where visitors can try their hand at printing.
