In commemoration of adopting the new banknotes, Sumida Hokusai Museum will be hosting an exhibition titled “The Impact of Hokusai’s Great Wave : Under the Wave off Kanagawa —Tracing Its Origins and Trajectory”.

Here the exhibition will explore the background behind the creation of “Under the Wave off Kanagawa from the Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji” and the multitude of ways its design has been used.
