The movie / game ukiyo-e prints by ukiyo-e artist, Kenji Iwasaki
Ukiyo-e are Japanese woodblock prints loved by the regular citizens of Japan during the Edo era (1603-1868).
The history of ukiyo-e prints are said to date back as far as the late 17th century. During the national isolation of the Edo era, Japan only had diplomatic relations and overseas exportation via The Netherlands. Ukiyo-e was used on the Japanese lacquerware and earthenware wrapping exported overseas. This form of art was highly reputed overseas and “ukiyo-e” soon became a widely understood word.
