You probably know what an ukiyo-e print looks like, even if you don't recognize the term.

The Great Wave Off Kanagawa by Katsushika Hokusai is a familiar image around the world,

a premier example of a Japanese art form that turns up on mugs and T-shirts as well as museum walls.

For me, a few museum posters bought in high school and preserved like precious relics gradually evolved into an obsession with Japanese culture. So when I heard there was a place in Tokyo where I could make an ukiyo-e print myself, I had to try it.
