Gekko studied painting on his own and refined his painting skills by drawing pottery for export and rough sketches of lacquerware.
Under such circumstances, he published the current ukiyo-e of Seikanron at his own expense around the 10th year of the Meiji era, and gradually became known. He has been involved in illustrations and frontispieces since around 1890, and suddenly became one of the most popular painters.
He is listed in 7th place in the ukiyo-e artist's detailed view shown in "Tokyo Fashionable Detailed View" in 1887. Considering that it is outside the ukiyo-e master-student relationship and it is just after his debut, it can be said that it is highly evaluated.
After that, he established himself as a popular painter, and at each meeting he piled up first prizes, silver cups, and bronze medals.
