Ishizaki Yũshi was born in a family of karae mekiki, inspectors of foreign pictures, a position that introduced him to European painting techniques. This gave him a great reputation and his atelier had a strong attraction to potential students. Yũshi had many, amongst them the famous Kawahara Keiga.
