A Website Featuring Osaka prints and other Japanese works of art
We specialize in kamigata-e, original eighteenth to twentieth century Japanese woodblock prints from Osaka and the surrounding region. We also offer occasional nineteenth-century Edo prints and twentieth-century art works from Osaka, Tokyo, and other regions of the world. Our inventory is
comprehensive and always changing, with a broad range of artists and prices.
Gallery: Our Sales Gallery is arranged by artist. Each print is accompanied by a full description.
Articles and More: We offer Articles on
topics related to Osaka prints, many covering aspects of Japanese printmaking that have been overlooked in
the standard literature. Various essays on a variety of other topics can be found at Varia.
We also maintain an Archive of the

It has been ten years since we started Osakaprints.com to broaden access to rare and affordable Kamigata area prints and paintings, and to offer extensive information about this tradition. Our Articles section, as well as the Archives, print descriptions, and other features of our website have elicited many letters and compliments, and we are very heartened by this. Many thanks!
As we embark on our next decade, we will continue to offer other kinds of quality prints and paintings that come our way. In this update, please note especially the wonderful sôsaku hanga pieces by Onchi Kôshirô, Ishii Tsuruzô, and Kawanishi Hide, as well as rarities by artists such as Kitagawa Toyohide and a uniquely titled impression of El Capitain by Hiroshi Yoshida.
