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
information pages for all sold prints. An extensive Glossary, artists'
Biographies & Signatures, and detailed
Bibliography serve as additional resources. A recent addition to our site is a Video presentation offering an introductory overview of kamigata-e.

Spring Sale 2014
We are very pleased to announce the spring 2014 update of our website. Complementing our signature array of high-quality kamigata-e (this time some very rare works by Hokuei, Shigeharu, and others, plus four deluxe Sadamasu chubans!) is a sprinkling of Edo-e with ties to Kamigata as well as 20th-century pieces. Also available from our website is a big new exhibition catalog, by far the grandest (and most bi-lingual) kamigata-e survey book yet produced in Japan.
We hope you enjoy browsing the site, and look forward to hearing from you.
