He began by making prints of actors, a specialty of the Utagawa school, quickly abandoned for the bijin-ga. He also painted landscapes and warriors, but although these beginnings in this field were promising, he never did much. He also made a large number of shunga (erotic engravings), before the reforms of the Tenpō era took place in 1842.
