About Kamigata Ukiyoe Museum, Osaka
During the Edo period, artists working with woodblock and print art were fascinated by kabuki actors, and thus made the actors the subject of their artworks. Also included were geisha and sumo wrestlers. Thus began the Ukiyoe culture of art. From there evolved the Kamigata culture of woodblock art, which is a little funnier than the Edo period's stylish work. This museum focuses almost exclusively on Kamigata ukiyoe and has a pretty exhaustive collection.
The museum even offers a beginner, intermediate and advanced course in making ukiyoe prints if you're so inclined. The classes last 30 minutes to one hour.
