JAPAN ~Ukiyo-e print~

Immediately when I found this great postcard (JP-239751) in my mailbox I knew from which country it came...This beautiful and delicate artwork is so typical from Japan...Thanks Yuki&Eri!!:D

With nice stamps too!

Ukiyo-e (literally "pictures of the floating world") is a genre of Japanese woodblock prints (or woodcuts) and paintings produced between the 17th and the 20th centuries, featuring motifs of landscapes, tales from history, the theatre, and pleasure quarters. It is the main artistic genre of woodblock printing in Japan.
