Actress Alice Hirose’s personality is TOKYO FM’s new program “Nisshin MCT Oil Presents” Alice Hirose’s Walk Weather “”. Every Saturday afternoon, this is a radio program where you can enjoy the feeling of “walking” with her in the city of Tokyo.

This month’s theme is “Autumn of Art”, “Museum Walk” to enrich your heart. In the broadcast on Saturday, November 21, we visited the Sumida Hokusai Museum, which is filled with the world of the world-famous ukiyo-e artist Katsushika Hokusai in Sumida Ward and Ryogoku.

Personality Alice Hirose

Today, I came to Ryogoku, Sumida-ku, Tokyo. Do you want to eat chanko? Sumo wrestler, do you want to see it? I am both.

But today is a walk in the autumn museum of art. There is a wonderful museum in this city, and it seems that an exhibition about my favorite “manga” is being held.

Let’s go for a walk toward the museum!

I want to do a lot of exercise today, and I want to see the streets of both countries, so I’d like to take a detour from JR Ryogoku Station. Let’s head via Ryogoku Kokugikan! If you look closely again, you will feel a little more excited. I’m overwhelmed.

First of all, proceed along “Kokugikan-dori”. It feels good in both countries because the road is wide no matter where you turn. Cross Kiyosumi-dori and cross the “Edo-Tokyo Museum”. It’s also a good idea to buy shitamachi souvenirs at the Edo-Tokyo Museum. There are lots of towels, cute Daruma figurines, and Japanese patterns, so it’s cute.

The Japanese pattern pouch was torn the other day, so I want a new one. will purchase! I will buy it!

Oh yeah, let’s go back for a walk. Enter Hokusai-dori. Every road has a good name, isn’t it? It’s almost time to see Midoricho Park. The fashionable silver building that gradually becomes visible is the Sumida Hokusai Museum.

Katsushika Hokusai is known as a world-famous painter. It seems that he spent most of his 90-year life in Sumida Ward. The Sumida Hokusai Museum of Art opened in 2016 as a base for commending Hokusai for a long time as a pride of the inhabitants of the ward.

Today, let’s go to “GIGA / MANGA Edo Caricature to Modern Manga” to be held from Wednesday, November 25th.

“Japanese MANGA” has become a common language in the world. In this exhibition, “caricature”, which is a satire expression of the Edo period when printing culture developed, is used as the starting point for cartoon-like expressions recognized in modern Japan.

From ukiyo-e prints from the Edo period to satire manga magazines from the Meiji and Taisho eras to children’s manga in the middle of the Showa era, works that can be said to have the roots of modern manga-like expressions are in line with the flow of the great era from the Edo period to the modern era. Introducing.

A large collection of various “manga roots” that transcends the framework of the times. The number is about 270! It’s amazing. You can see it over a day.

Today I introduced you to the Sumida Hokusai Museum, which is a 9-minute walk from Ryogoku Station on the JR Sobu Line.
