These programs are sold out. Immerse yourself in a multisensory tour of Hiroshige’s 100 Famous Views of Edo (feat. Takashi Murakami) led by Jessica Murphy, a fragrance historian and Manager of Group Experiences at the Brooklyn Museum. The Museum’s complete set of Utagawa Hiroshige’s 100 Famous Views of Edo, a meticulously executed and beautifully preserved series of prints, is one of our greatest treasures. The series’ vivid colors, innovative compositions, and rich detail evoke daily life in mid-19th-century Edo (modern-day Tokyo), with an emphasis on locations where people gathered to observe the changing seasons.

In this guided tour, we’ll enhance the viewing experience by pairing selected prints with scents specially created by Brooklyn-based Joya Studio. Using our senses, we’ll reflect on the tension between natural and human-made elements in Hiroshige’s vistas of a rapidly changing city.

Tickets are $35 and include a one-time 10% discount in the Museum Shop. On May 23 and June 12, tickets also include Museum general admission; on May 30 and June 20, tickets also include admission to only Hiroshige’s 100 Famous Views of Edo (feat. Takashi Murakami).
