HOKUSAI Manga
:
Threat Eye, Threat Drawing
KATSUSHIKA HOKUSAI (1760 -1849) is a world-famous Ukiyoe artist. Among his masterpieces, 'Hokusai Manga' is known as a masterpiece along with "Fugaku Sanjyu-rokkei(36 Views of Mt. Fuji)". It was painted as a picture model for his disciples and when its first edition was published in 1814 (Bunka 11), it became extremely popular with the common people and was repeatedly published until 1878 (Meiji 11) after HOKUSAI's death. Its sophisticated brushwork, dynamic composition, and humorous depiction of people's features and momentary movements reveal, eloquently, HOKUSAI's extraordinary power of drawing and vision, which he called "an old man crazy about painting" continued to draw until he was 90 years old. In this exhibition, we will introduce about 200 more selected items from the collection of Mr. Mitsuru Uragami, who boasts the world's highest quality and quantity.

The image of The Fudou Myoo owned by Daizen-ji Temple

Daizenji Temple in Katsunuma-cho, Koshu City is an ancient temple that dates back to the Heian period in the 9th century and is known as a temple connected to the powerful Saigusa clan. It is believed that Fudou Myoo zou (a statue of Acala, one of the Five Wisdom Kings), which is 445 cm long and 340 cm wide and painted in color on a silk canvas, was created in the 12 century, but the painting is not clear today.
Fortunately, however, a copy painted by Jyokei YOKOTA inBunka 4(1807) in the Edo period has been handed down with color on paper and almost the same size. This copy allows us to see the original image of the Heian period.
The copy was recently repaired and its vivid appearance has come back. In this exhibition, this Fudou Myoo will be exhibited outside the temple for the first time, and the repair process will be introduced on panels, etc., along with the importance of preserving cultural properties.

The Adventures of KOSHUYA Chuemon
At the end of the Edo period, on June 2 (lunar calendar) in Ansei 6(1859), Yokohama celebrated its 160 year anniversary. When Yokohama's port opened, Chuemon Shinohara (Koshuya Chuemon) quickly opened a Koshuya store and sold raw silk to foreigners, earning a large profit. Chuemon Shinohara was born in Bunka 6(1809) to a family serving as a longtime farmer in Higashiaburakawa Village, Yatsushiro County (Present Higashiaburakawa, Isawa-cho, Fuefuki City). At the age of 50, he and his sons began investing in new business opportunities in Yokohama. In this exhibition, we will highlight the activities of these Koshu merchants who promoted local products in response to the changing times, and introduce their foresight and energy.

The Douso-jin, or the Village Boundary God, is a god originally enshrined at town boundaries, the crossroads where streets met, and at mountain passes where they prevented any bad spirits from entering the village. At the same time, they were also considered to be the god for good marriages and the blessing of children. Even to this day, many simple Douso-jin statutes are left all throughout Japan.
