TOKYO | Ōta Memorial Museum of Art is a museum in Shibuya that showcases Ukiyo-e from Ōta Seizo V’s collection. Each month, 70 pieces from the collection are displayed in a small themed exhibit.

Ukiyo-e is a genre of Japanese art that was popular in the 17th to 19th centuries. Ukiyo-e artists produced woodblock prints and paintings of such subjects that touched upon every day life including things like female beauties, kabuki actors, sumo wrestlers, travel scenes, landscapes, flora and fauna, and erotica. The most famous of these, which most people around the world recognise, is Katsushika Hokusai’s The Great Wave off Kanagawa.

Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
