Shinshu Obuse (Obuse, Kamitakai District, Nagano Prefecture), where Hokusai often visited. In 1842, when Hokusai was 83 years old, he visited Obuse for the first time. He was protected by Kozan Takai, a wealthy local farmer and merchant, and was given a studio. Their relationship was so close that they called each other "Sensei" and "Danna-sama". Hokusai left his masterpiece in a very blessed environment. In 1844, he created the Higashimachi Festival float ceiling paintings "Dragon" and "Phoenix", and in the following year, 1845, the Uemachi Festival float ceiling paintings "Kanmachi Festival Cart Masculine Waves" and "Menamizu". In 1847 at the age of 88, he created the ceiling painting "Phoenix" in the main hall of Iwamatsu-in. Hokusai wished for his own progress in his paintings without losing his passion for painting even in his old age. His Hokusai culmination blossomed in Obuse. The Hokusai Museum (Hokusaikan General Incorporated Foundation) in Obuse has a float ceiling painting at the Uemachi Festival, "Kanmachi Festival Cart Masculine Waves", reproduced on silk as an interior model, a traditional Japanese culture. It was reproduced as a Kakejiku.

Reproduce the force, the skill of dyeing craftsmen in Kyoto
The craftsmen of the Kyoto Yuzen dyeing shop "Kameda Tomi Dyeing Factory" hand-dyes silk one by one and reproduces it. The molds, which are made one by one, are made by a traditional craftsman who draws every detail. Using them, we layer colors one by one and carefully create one piece of fabric. It can be said that the craftsmanship that has been built up over a long history can be said to be the skill of craftsmen who carefully express the crashing crests of the waves, the surging waves, and the roughness of the ocean.

Coloring Hokusai with traditional Japanese technique "Kakejiku"
"Kakejiku" has been integrated with Japanese culture since ancient times and has played an important role in interior decoration. Uses the highest quality damask woven with luxurious use of the first thread spun from eyebrows. The fabric that shines iridescent when viewed from the angle of light gives off a sense of dignity and dignity that only the real thing can have, and the supple and slippery texture creates a texture unique to pure silk. Pottery (old kiln ceramic pottery) is used at the tip of the shaft that wraps around the Kakejiku. The package for storing important reproductions of Hokusai is a paulownia box.
