When you talk about Japan, everyone sounds that typical picture in which you see a tremendous wave about to swallow some boats with Mount Fuji in the background. This is "The great wave of Kanagawa" by the famous artist called Hokusai and is a "ukiyo-e", a style of painting very popular among the s. XVII and XIX.

If you are interested and want to see it closely, you do not need to go to Japan, because it is in Paris like many others of this style (!). But if you go to La Pedrera before September 14, it is no longer necessary to go to Paris, because right now there is an exhibition of ukiyo-e that includes this work and many others equally interesting (!!). And also the entrance is free-free-free (!!!). In short: you have to take advantage and go see it.

We went the other day. It is an exhibition that is fine even if you do not like going to see museums, because it is not very extensive, it is well explained without getting heavy, you can sit and watch a very interesting video and, of course, there is air conditioning 😀
