First Mass Production of Artworks
Ukiyo-e is a genre of Japanese art which flourished from the 17th through 19th centuries. Its artists produced woodblock prints and paintings of such subjects as female beauties; kabuki actors and sumo wrestlers; scenes from history and folk tales; travel scenes and landscapes; flora and fauna; and erotica.

Katsushika Hokusai (葛飾 北斎)
Katsushika Hokusai (葛飾 北斎, c. 31 October 1760 – 10 May 1849), known simply as Hokusai, was a Japanese artist, ukiyo-e painter and printmaker of the Edo period. Hokusai is best known for the woodblock print series Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji which includes the internationally iconic print The Great Wave off Kanagawa. [Wikipedia]
How Ukiyo-e made?
Hokusai-kan Museum (北斎館)
Museum featuring paintings & wood-block prints by the famous ukiyo-e artist Katsushika Hokusai.
One nice Ukiyo-e museum, but access takes some time
There were many stamps. I recommend you bring a book to collect them.
Modern Ukiyo-e. Similar to traditional Ukiyo-e, images are made of layers. But in these work, some layer had sand-like texture, while some has oil-like texture.
