Mrs Brown states that his initial training in Osaka was with Tachibana Morikuni and that he arrived in Edo in 1760. Saiga Shokunin Burui was produced in Edo by Uemura Tozaburo and Sawa Itsuki with a second (inferior) edition in 1784. Mrs Brown gives the date for the first edition as 1770. Hillier gives 1771 as the date and debunks the myth that the second edition came from recut blocks because of the fire of 1772.
