Japanese Art

Afternoon Chaps

Does anyone know any websites that have some Japanese art on them? I'm after some images for my desktop but can't find anything!

Thanks, just what I was after. The Hokusai images were the ones I was after.

Incidentally, what do ukiyoe and shodo mean?

Did a Google image search for sumi-e and got this page.

Shodo is the way of the brush, ukiyoe is woodblock printing.

I may not have translated those literally
