A special exhibition titled "The Pioneers: Masters of Edo Painting" is taking place until November 8th at Osaka's Abeno Harukas Art Museum. The event looks at the works of 35 painters from across Japan whose individuality and unique expression was seen as daring at the time.

The works on display include pieces from the likes of Ito Jakuchu, Nagasawa Rosetsu, and Soga Shohaku, through to Ogata Korin, Maruyama Okyo, and Katsushika Hokusai.

Adult admission to the event is 1400 yen, and do note that the museum is closed on October 12th and 26th during the exhibition dates if you're planning a special trip.

Getting there

The Abeno Harukas Art Museum is located just a minute on foot from the Osaka Abenobashi Station, served by the Minami Osaka Line of the Kintetsu Railway, or two minutes on foot from Tennoji Station on the JR Osaka Loop Line.

As there is no on-site parking available, visitors to the museum are advised to use public transport where possible.

I'm an Australian who has lived abroad for almost a decade, including 7 years in Japan. I've also visited 44 of 47 prefectures, with only Kagoshima, Miyazaki and Kumamoto left to check out. I'm particularly fond of exploring off the beaten path destinations, gardens, and tea houses, and have a real interest in Japan's growing vegan scene.
