Ukiyo-e Zoom Private Academic Tour

Due to COVID-19 pandemic, Ukiyo-e zoom tailor-made academic tour will be available from worldwide. You can take it at home instantly up to 100 participants on an affordable price which will last for 40 mins. I could accommodate the time on your most convenient time. It’s my honor to introduce Ukiyo-e prints which are world-class artworks. 

I’m Mari, a licensed national tour guide in Japan. I have been guiding many art tours in Tokyo for four years. This virtual tour is the almost same contents I have actually guided at Ukiyo-e museums in Japan. 

Ukiyo-e is a genre of Japanese traditional printing which was established and became popular among ordinary people during the Edo period in 17C. Ukiyo-e prints described the life of common people, portraits of Kabuki actors, beautiful women, and famous scenery. Ukiyo-e prints had an especially great influence on Impressionists, such as Vincent van Gogh and Claude Monet. This movement is called “Japonism.” 

During this online seminar, I will give a power point presentation for 20 mins including historical back grounds and characteristic features of Ukiyo-e. This is a flexible private virtual tour which will be based on your knowledge level of Ukiyo-e: Beginners who haven’t heard Japanese artworks or people who have some knowledge about them or who want to study Japanese Art history in details. 

The other day, I made a trial of this virtual tour with my American friend who is an artist in Los Angles. After my virtual tour, she sent the following comments.

“Thank you so much for tonight’s presentation of Ukiyo-e wood block prints. I learned a lot. You did a great job. If I visit Tokyo in future, I would definitely hire you as my tour guide.”

I am sure that after taking this virtual online tour, you will be able to know something new and unique which will provide you wider perspectives.  

Since this is a virtual tour, you don’t have to travel to Japan. Just click the following site or send to me your inquiries if any.

Mari was a lovely lady who had a personalised note waiting for us at our hotel. She met us there and was adaptable for our first day to organise our rail and metro passes as well. She took us to an amazing lunch spot and was very patient with my tired boys. Mari would probably be better suited to a couple, as my boys were a challenge, though she was very kind and did her best. Thank you Mari for a...

Due to our limited time and in the evening, hiring a tour guide (Mari) was our best choice to get the most out of our short stay. Mari was friendly, professional, and well versed in the history of Narita and Japan in General. Mari assisted/guided in storing our luggage, transit and check-in at our hotel even before our tour started. Once we began, we walked through Narita and stopped by many place...

Mari is a very cheerful and experienced tour guide. She brought us to Tsukiji and showed us all the interesting stores and places at the market. She narrated the interesting stories and events that happened at Tsukiji. Instead of queuing for hours to try quality sushi at the market, Mari steered us to a little sushi shop, Sushi Cho, a few blocks from Tsukiji which sells excellent quality sushi wit...

We could not have experienced Nikko in one day without Mari. She knew all the special sights and could explain the history and rituals to us. She let us take our time to explore and answered all of our questions. I would highly recommend for a tour of Nikko and any other tour she offers.

She is very knowledgeable on all matters of Japan (even though our focus was on historical art and architecture) and enlightened us greatly on ...

We had a proper Japanese lun...
