The Edo-Tokyo Museum, a Tokyo-based museum dedicated to showcasing the history and culture of Tokyo’s pre-modernized Edo period, will organize a booth at the annual J-POP Summit festival, which will be held this year at the Fort Mason Center in San Francisco, USA on July 23 and 24.

The Edo-Tokyo Museum’s booth inside the Travel Area will present an experiential display involving Japanese ukiyo-ewoodblock prints. Twice each day, an artist will demonstrate how ukiyo-e are made and then invite visitors to try making their own prints.

Some of the many other highlights of the Edo-Tokyo Museum booth will include:

  • English leaflets and original Edo-Tokyo Museum ukiyo-e postcards
  • Video introduction to the Edo-Tokyo Museum
  • Informational display about ukiyo-e
  • Explanations by Edo-Tokyo museum staffers
  • Lottery offering great prizes, including air tickets to Japan, Japanese ceramics, and more

The Edo period is recognized as the source of modern Japanese pop culture, a time when important cultural traditions such as kabuki, fashion, music, haiku poetry, art and literature flourished. The Edo-Tokyo Museum booth will provide visitors with a clear snapshot of the cultural foundations of one of the world’s greatest cities, Tokyo.
