Sasabe Shintaro (1887-1987) devoted his life to protect and nurture Japan’s ancient wild cherry blossom trees. Sasabe wished to make the culture surrounding cherry blossom trees flourish even more than during the Edo period (1603-1867), when the cherry blossom viewing and gardening began to be popular, and when gardens with varieties of cherry blossoms appeared. The Mikuma School, known for exclusively painting cherry blossom trees, also began during this period.

This exhibition focuses on the Edo period cherry blossom trees featured in hanging scrolls, Nishiki-e paintings, books and more.

I’m deeply interested in the works of art depicting the four seasons and the items that make me feel the history.
