    Chronicles of the Warriors:
    Japanese Swords x Ukiyo-e from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston

    21 January – 25 March 2022
    Mori Arts Center Gallery

    The coming show at the Mori Arts Center Gallery, Roppongi Hills, will shed light on ukiyo-e from a perspective rarely featured as the main theme of exhibit: “musha-e” or literally “picture of warrior(s)”.

    On view are a brilliant selection of Japanese woodblock prints and sword guards (tsuba) depicting heroic figures and their deeds, together with finest Japanese swords from the prime collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
