'Together with Ito Shinsui, Kobayakawa Kiyoshi and Torii Kotondo, Shuho is counted among Kiyokata's outstanding students in the bijinga genre, particularly in his delicate illustrations of traditional dancers. Shuho made his artistic debut in 1919 with the display of his work in the official Teiten exhibition. As a print designer, Shuho produced approximately 20 prints in the 1920s and 30s with the publishers Watanabe Shozaburo and the Bijutsusha, all of which date from the early Showa period. His prints are sumptuous both in color and technique.' The New Wave; pg. 179
