Blog Contest: How Can You Win This Remake Of The Dream Of The Fishermans Wife Print?

Blog Contest: How Can You Win This Remake Of The Dream Of The Fishermans Wife Print?

Why a Shunga Gallery blog contest? Although, Japanese shunga is considered as erotic art of the highest order globally, as underlined by important exhibitions such as that of the British Museum in 2013, of its fame we have only seen the tip of the iceberg.

Without The Fear

It’s our intention to offer a platform (including a forum later this year) for shunga fans and collectors to enjoy, discuss and learn more about this fascinating and important art without the fear of censorship.

Attractive Prizes

In our neverending efforts to promote this great art we have decided to hold frequent contests with the chance of winning attractive prizes for all the followers of our blog and on social media.


The contest is simple. All you have to do is to comment to this post and leave your name (in the comment box below this page!).

Randomly Selecting

The winner will be announced both through our newsletter and the social media platforms on which we are active on the 20th of March after randomly selecting a name by drawing it out of a bowl the old fashioned way.


So what’s in it for the winner? A lovely genuine woodblock reproduction of Hokusai‘s classic ‘The Dream of the Fisherman’s Wife‘ print ! Carved by the highly-skilled Japanese artist Yuuya Shimoi who is one of the few schooled woodblock craftsmen working in Japan today.

My private thoughts on this ” famous” print are of a different one.
As a woman is attacked by these monsters,she must be dreaming a nightmare.
I think the title need to change in The nightmare of the fisherman s wife.
There are more prints with a misleading title,in Hokusai.
The act coming close to a rape or even worse.
During the presentation over this year all the inhumanly acts on sexual behaving passed.
This could be food for a deranged mind..
I stress the thought for some may need professional help.
Non the less I enjoyed your presentation from a more distant point of view.

Hello Marijn,
This is fantastic! ShungaGallery has become my go to blog for everything Shunga. As someone who purchased a first state print by Yuuya Shimoi, I can guarantee that the lucky winner of this draw will indeed by very pleased. Kudos on all the exciting plans for the future and a BiG thank you for all your passionate hard work to promoting Shunga and educating us all in the process. By the way, I have already purchased a couple of gems from your store, and in both cases, items were quickly shipped and expertly packed. Thank you!

Nice Piece!

By MarkP on 18 March 2019

It has been a joy to watch this site develop over the years into a true resource for all things shunga (and more!). A recent example is the publication of the English translation of the text on the Fisherman’s Wife print (which I’d still love to see printed in a similar way to the reprint and made available). The extended thematic articles (like the one about octopi-in-art that accompanied the announcement of this reprint) also contain numerous invaluable clues and pointers. My (usually) Monday morning e-mails from Marijn always get my week off to a good start!
