"Otsu Painting Collection" Exhibition

Otsu City Museum of History

This event has ended.

"Otsu paintings" were sold as souvenirs on the Tokaido's commercial strip in Otsu. The Tokaido was an important route during the Edo period (1603-1868) that connected Edo (modern-day Tokyo) and Kyoto. The humorous expressions found in Otsu paintings appealed to many art lovers throughout Japan, and the paintings became popular among them. The exhibition features well-known Otsu paintings, such as the "Devil's Chanting" and "Fuji Daughter", created between the Edo and modern periods.
