Delve into wood block printing at an entertaining workshop in Tokyo.
Looking for a break from traditional sightseeing in Tokyo? Just down the road from Asakusa Senso-ji Temple, you will find a wonderful ukiyo-e woodcut workshop.
Every day they have “print parties,” a one-hour hands-on experience for small groups of five who get bogged down in print production. The emphasis is on participation, no long explanations or historical details, just a lot of fun, suitable for anyone, any age! A coordinator will install four wooden frames and from here you can puncture the ink and make your own impression with plenty of time to try again and perfect the process.
