The Museum of Modern Art, Wakayama, located 40 minutes from Kansai International Airport, sits right beside Wakayama Castle, and reflects the castle's design in its architecture. Half of its 14,000-piece collection consists of Japanese print art. This episode follows the revolutionary techniques and bold lives of historic print artists. These prints, as well as depictions of the rich local nature, introduce artists from Wakayama Prefecture and their contributions to the history of modern art.
