Memories of Ukiyoeryokan


At the entrance of the exhibition, 3 paintings of "Doshokusaie (paintings of animals and plants)", a representative work of Jakuchu Ito, are displayed. Jakuchu Ito's work are said to be different from those of other painters of the time.

The dynamic life force of plants, birds, insects, fish, shellfish, and other creatures in the "Doushokusaie" series captivates the viewer.

There are 30 different types of Jakuchu Ito's "Doushokusaie" paintings.
We reproduced them in tapestries that are the same size as the original hanging scrolls.
We display the tapestries three at a time at our hotel and rotate them regularly.

You will discover different Jakuchu's paintings every time you visit us.

In the middle of the Edo era, in 1716, Jakuchu Ito was born as the first-born son of Masugen, a produce wholesaler in Nishiki Market, Kyoto.

When he was 22 years old, he took over the family business after his father died, but all he could think about was his desire to hold a paintbrush in his hand, so he began to study painting in earnest after he turned 30, and at the age of 39, he gave the reigns of the family business to his younger brother and went into retirement.

Around 1758 (age 42), he began work on the "Doushokusaie" series, which would become his masterpiece. It took him 10 years to complete this series of 30 large paintings, which became the greatest masterpiece of flower-and-bird painting in the history of Japanese art.

In his final years, he planned a group of stone statues of five hundred arhats “Gohyakurakan”, depicting the life of Buddha from his birth to nirvana, to be placed behind the main hall of Sekiho-ji Temple. It took almost 10 years to complete with the help of the temple's priest and his younger sister.

In 1800, he passed away at the age of 84. He was a bachelor all his life.
If you are interested in the "Doushokusaie", we highly recommend visiting “Gohyakurakan” as well.
