[Hatsusaburo YOSHIDA, 1884-1955]
Hatsusaburo Yoshida, the bird's eye view map artist from Kyoto, was active during the tourism boom in Japan before the World War II. His works were commissioned by the train companies, the city offices, the news paper companies and the hotels.
Throughout his life, he made more than 3,000 maps and was known as the Hiroshige of his age, who was the most famous Japanese ukiyo-e artist.
In his beautiful maps, he often placed Mt. Fuji in the backgrounds.
Still this day, these maps are popular among his fans.
