The Ukiyo-e Tradition

Ukiyo-e woodblock printing represents Japan’s unique tradition and cultural heritage, passed down for 400 years since the Edo period to the present day.

The Backstreet Boys Ukiyo-e is the outcome of a painstaking and complex process, involving the printing of 40 color layers using a series of 12 hand-carved woodblocks.

Enjoy the magnificent techniques of contemporary Ukiyo-e featuring the world’s best-selling boy band, the Backstreet Boys!
