歴史 History

 

Yasuchika’s first name was Yagohachi (弥五八) and he was born in Kanbun ten (寛文, 1671) as son of the Shōnai fief (庄内藩) samurai Tsuchiya Chūzaemon (土屋忠左衛門). He became a student of Shōami Chinkyū (正阿弥珍久). In Genroku ten (元禄, 1697), he learned from Nara Tatsumasa (奈良辰政). During the Shōtoku era (正徳, 1711-1716), he was employed by Matsudaira Daigaku no Kami Yorisada (松平大学頭頼貞, 1664-1744) who was the Daiymō of the Moriyama fief (守山藩) in Mitsu province. He left us many great masterworks and was later regarded with Nara Toshinaga (奈良利寿) and Sugiura Jōi (杉浦乗意) ad one of the Nara Sansaku (奈良三作), the “Three Great Nara Masters.
