Till february 17th, The Sieboldhuis (Leiden, the Netherlands)presents 'Ghosts and Spirits'. It shows woodblock prints (by a.o. Hokusai and Kuniyoshi), paintings and netsuke representing ghosts, monsters and other supernatural matters. The exhibition is selected from the collection of Felix Tikotin, the German/Dutch collectioner who founded the Tikotin Museum of Japanese Arts at Haifa, Israel.
Nice museum anyway, The Sieboldhuis, located at the former residence of Philippe Franz Von Siebold and dedicated to his works and the long lasting relationship between Japan and the Netherlands. [url]www.sieboldhuis.org
The town Leiden is quite close to Rotterdam, so you can visit the exhibition 'Samurai' at the Wereldmuseum the same day.

Oh, sweet. I didn't know that Siebold's house would still be standing, and visitable as a museum / historical site.

I would really love to visit the Netherlands one of these days, and Leiden especially. I gather they have some pretty strong Japan connections, and I hear the Volkenkunde Museum has an amazing collection.

Von Siebold lived there for only a short while, but after he moved to 'Huize Nippon' at the outskirts of Leiden, he used Rapenburg 19 to store his collection, which was also open to public.
Leiden is great indeed: a couple of real good musea, the Sino-Japanese-Korean faculty is located there, and it's a lovely old town too. So, you can skip Amsterdam on your visit to the Netherlands. Smile
