The Poetess Shushikijo (detail), By Eishosai Choki, Edo period, 18th century (Important Art Object)

Ukiyo-e, which portray the daily lives of townspeople during the Edo period (1603–1868), were comprised solely of hand-painted works by the artists until multicolored woodblock prints became mass produced. This exhibit, by a mixture of prints and paintings, introduces works related to the deification and worship toward Sugawara no Michizane, whose memorial is in February, along with pine, snow, and other seasonal themes related to the month.
