May 9

Robin, Steve and Charna went to Miyajima. I went to the Prefectural Art Museum where I spent several hours looking at an ukiyoe exhibit of Kuniyoshi, Yoshitoshi and some of their followers. I loved this exhibit of woodblock prints that was set up to highlight the skill of the Yoshi family and their students. Instead of showing each artist separately the exhibit was divided into four categories: warriors, beautiful women, ghosts and murders, and satire on current events.

I had lunch back at the train station and spent time walking around. I particularly enjoyed watching the bean paste cakes being made.


At 15:22 we all got on the train to Kyoto.
