Mizuno Toshikata
[1866-1908]

The most recent of all the prints in our collection having been just acquired at auction in London, it features a compelling rendition of the third act in the Hachi no ki tale....the Destruction! Please take the time to link to the actual text of the story to experience this historical literary treasure from deep in the Japanese past. Toshikata elegantly encapsulates pages of text in this single view. There exist other versions of the Hachi no ki in print form....and we are always on the alert to acquire more, but the three available here can be considered the core collection.
