Katsushika Hokusai Exhibition was held at Roppongi, Mori Art Museum.
（Katsushika Hokusai (葛飾 北斎, listen (help·info), c. October 31, 1760 – May 10, 1849) was a Japanese artist, ukiyo-e painter and printmaker of the Edo period.

I got a free ticket from the newspaper company.
Sometimes newspaper companies give special tickets to corporate subscribers.
A lot of people were waiting in line at the entrance.
We waited only for 30 minutes because I had a special tickets.
Yesterday, NHK Tv showed his works. So, today many people will go there.
He became an artist Edo Era, in 1778.
He completed his first painting when he was 20.
It was a huge exhibition.
His works are displayed in other countries.
People around the world love his works.
I never see his real works, until yesterday.
He drew unique pictures like manga,too.
He changed his name and moved out often and he changed his style many times.
About 500 of Hokusai's works were exhibited.
His works made me energetic.
His drawings are more creative and more touching.
He was talented because he could change his style as a challenge for him.
Art collector Mr Nagata knew about his works and he gathered a lot of Hokusai's works.
Nagata collection with 2000 works was donated to the Shimane Art Museum after he passed away.
Many of his works are exhibited in Shimane Art Museum now.
And to hold the exhibition, they borrowed his works from other countries.
This is the last big exhibition that can be seen outside Shimane Art Museum.
