  1. The sakurai believed that the swords were there soul
    I think the artist got inspired by going around the world to look at paintings and especially French and Dutch one’s

  2. The period derives its name from Edo (now Tokyo), where on March 24, 1603, the shogunate was officially established by Tokugawa Ieyasu. The period came to an end with the Meiji Restoration on May 3, 1868, after the fall of Edo.

    The Edo had 5 different levels of social classes based on the peoples wealth and power.

    The dates of the Edo period were defined by the shoguns which was a family named after Tokugawa.

  4. 1) Edo became one of the largest cities in all of japan back then.
    It started due to “intense interaction” with Europe.
    It ended with the Meiji restoration of 1868 when shoguns were taken back down to the level of a common daimyo.

    2) he was inspired by many people such as hiroshige and katsugawa shunsho.

    3) I think the hardest process was transferring our sketch onto polystyrene because my paper kept ripping >:(

  5. 1)The Edo era is the period of the Japanese history from 1603 -1868

    2)I predict that the legend inspired him because the boy came from the great wave.

  6. Can you tell me an interesting fact that you have learnt about this Era? Samurais were paid with rice. How did it begin? While the Tokugawa shoguns took over (1603). End? 1868.

    What do you think inspired this artist the most? Katsukawa Shunsō, as he took Katsushika under his wing whilst he, (Katsushika) was 18. How was his work influenced by his country’s current climate and history? Maybe because of the different traditions were lower as travelling was much less common.

    What did you find to be the most difficult aspect of this process? I think most would say the printing on the polystyrene, but I think the little details on the image were tougher to fit in.

  7. 1.) The beginning of the Edo period coincides with the last decades of the Nanban trade period during which intense interaction with European powers, on the economic and religious plane, took place.The Tokugawa shogunate declined during the Bakumatsu (“final act of the shogunate”) period from 1853 and was overthrown by supporters of the Imperial Court in the Meiji Restoration in 1868. That’s how it ended
    2.) I think because he loved the seas and he drew his own and he sketched it out. It was influenced into his country because it printed and exotic.
    3.) Doing the sketch of the Great Wave we had to sketch and then print it it was really difficult to do.

  9. Can you tell me an interesting fact that you have learnt about this Era? How did it begin? End?
    The Edo Period was between 1603-1867. One interesting fact I have learnt is that even the lowest samurai remained high in social standing than the highest peasant.

    What do you think inspired this artist the most? How was his work influenced by his country’s current climate and history?
    His art was influenced by Katsukawa Shunso as he created art in blocks of wood.

    What did you find to be the most difficult aspect of this process?
    When we printed it on the paper as you had to do it carefully and not make it rip.

    It started in 1603 and ended in 1867
    The edo period brought law and order to Japan.
    What do you think inspired this artist the most? How was his work influenced by his country’s current climate and history?He was inspired by Katsukawa shunsho who went to a school that did woodblock art
    What did you find to be the most difficult aspect of this process?
    I think when we had to repeat it on the foam was the hardest part
