In both quality and quantity, the Japan Ukiyo-e Museum is one of the most prominent wood-block print museums in Japan. The 10,000 piece collection includes calligraphy and wood-block printed books. The museum also contains many historically valuable wood-block prints, ranging from the early examples of the Ukiyo-e art to contemporary woodblock prints. These art works were collected by Sakai family spending 200 years. The family was also a patron of the great Ukiyo-e master Utagawa Hiroshige (Ando Hiroshige).
