Kuniyoshi Utagawa, who is said to have loved cats, also created many works of anthropomorphic cats. In addition to the series of goldfish, the museum’s ukiyo-e collection also includes a picture of a cat wearing a kimono and acting like a human being, “Neko no Genji Kenki.” Please enjoy watching cats in ukiyo-e together with “Hyaku Monogatari”. -A ping-pong pearl with a calico cat color is now available!
