Kitagawa Utamaro

Ohisa of Takashiamya Holding a Fan

The Ukiyo-e is printed on Echizen kizuki hosho washi (a unique kind of Japanese paper) handmade by Ichibei Iwano, a living national treasure. This makes the vivid colors and the soft, warm textures of woodcut prints come to life.

Ohisa was the youngest daughter of Takashima Chobei, the keeper of a rice-cake store at Ryogoku in Edo (Tokyo). Chobei was also the owner of a teahouse, where Ohisa helped as a waitress and attracted patrons. Her light-colored kimono and the white mica background lend her the elegant grace of a decent girl.
