Quoted from TokyoTokyo Unique detail page:
The development of woodblock printing technology in the 18th century brought ukiyo-e prints into the mainstream of popular culture. Most arresting were the nishiki-e, or “brocade prints” made using more than 10 color print blocks, a unique Japanese art form that influenced the Impressionist artists. Meanwhile, it is now 10 years since the birth of Hatsune Miku, the Vocaloid character that symbolizes Japanese culture today. She is an example of Japan’s art finding new fans the world over.
