A disciple of Katsushika Hokusai. He drew landscapes of Edo meisho (famous places) from the end of the Kansei Era (1789-1801) and was famous as a uki-e (perspective pictures) master during the Kyowa Era (1801-1804). He was strongly influenced by Hokusai's western style prints and established his own original western landscape prints by incorporating perspective and shadowing techniques during the Bunka Era (1804-18).
