One of the few museums in the world dedicated exclusively to printmaking, this spacious and well-curated museum has amassed a collection of some 30,000 prints from around the world, some dating back to the eighth century.

After you've toured the permanent and temporary galleries, it's worth spending some time in the museum's "Hi-Vision Gallery," a theater area where you can watch eight different video programs (in Japanese) devoted to the history of Japanese hanga prints.

The museum also organizes workshops and lectures, and provides rental exhibition spaces and printmaking studios. You can find books and postcards, framed prints, and five different varieties of cookies in the small museum shop.
