Kikuchi Kigetsu, "Rokugasen (Six Immortal Poets)" (right screen, partial view)

An exhibition to familiarize yourself with two classical literatures: “Hyakunin Isshu and the Tales of Ise through pictures” / Saga Arashiyama Bunkakan

Saturday, January 28, 2023 - Sunday, April 09, 2023
10:00-17:00 (last admission 16:30)
Saga Arashiyama Museum of Culture

Chapter 1 exhibits the Ogura Shikishi, a valuable work that conveys the original form of the Hyakunin Isshu, said to have been handwritten by Fujiwara no Teika, as well as calligraphy and paintings related to the Hyakunin Isshu. The second chapter focuses on the beautiful man and boy in love, Narihira Uzaihara, and presents a reading of "The Tale of Ise," which revolves around waka poems, along with paintings that evoke scenes from the story. Let's become more familiar with these two classics of literature.
