NEW Begin with the earthenware vessels of the prehistoric Yayoi and Jomon periods before jumping forward to the Asuka period where the introduction of Buddhism had a significant impact on art and culture. Witness the birth of some of Japan’s most recognizable art forms such as Noh masked dramas and ink wash paintings during the chaotic feudal era. See how Japanese art flourished during the Tokugawa shogunate leading to the “Floating World” genre including Hiroshige’s The Fifty-Three Stations of the Tokaido. End in the modern era where Japanese art and culture has spread globally through film and manga.
