Uemura Shoen is a famous painter from Kyoto, established her original Bijinga style and became a pioneer of female painters.
Uemura Shoen’s “Yuki-onna (Snow Woman)” will also be on display, and it is the first time fot this rare painting to be exhibited in front of public, so don’t miss it!

We also recommend the “Bread and Espresso” cafe that can only be accessed by the visitors of Fukuda Museum of Art.
This is the brand’s second branch in Arashiyama ♡
The café has a 180° panoramic view overlooking Oi River (Oigawa), Togetsukyo Bridge, and Arashiyama, so enjoying a tea time while looking over the beautiful scenery will make your mind and body relaxed.
It would be great to visit the museum in kimono, so you can feel the Japanese atmosphere more.


This time, we will show you some points that you should keep in mind when posing for photos when you’re wearing kimono.
