A Japanese painting is the pictures
style to which it has 1000 and
hundreds of years of history,and technique, a material, and soul
nature are inherited.
However, the Japanese paintings generally imagined the beauties
nature,and a Buddhist painting and ukiyoe Even if it sees a "Japanese
today, the work which is not understood whether to be oil painting
is in use apparently.
The word "Japanese
First of all, the "Japanese painting" as language was
built in the Meiji 20s.
In the pictures of the Western style which Japanese people draw
when an European painting

aesthetic sense which comes from the feeling of religion since,
the West, the Christianity of "human worship" has permeated
