Grand Sumo collection
© Kototsurugi

2542: Grand Sumo collection (Kototsurugi)

A collection of the recognised techniques of winning in sumo. There are 82 winning techniques, plus five hi-waza, or "non-techniques", really ways of losing for the opponent (these are the last five pictures, with green captions).

Detail

Wikipedia has a full list under the Japanese term kimarite.

Kototsurugi is a former sumo wrestler, born in 1960. After a not very distinguished sumo career, he returned to his childhood love of drawing, and has become a successful sumo cartoonist. His sumo name Kototsurugi is a typically poetic combination of the koto (Japanese harp) and tsurugi, a broadsword; his real name is Miyata Noboru.

2542: Shops and buggies (Wysocki)

The American artist Charles Wysocki (1928-2002) was born in Detroit, but spent almost all his working life on the West Coast of the USA, in Los Angeles, and in Lake Arrowhead where he settled, just to the east.

His rather charming primitive style is instantly recognisable: full of warm wit, but rigidly refusing to comply with any conventional "rules" of perspective.

2542: Aizu-wakamatsu Castle

Although this castle boasts a history stretching back more than 600 years, it was damaged in the Battle of Aizu — hostilities during the switch from the rule of the Shoguns to the Meiji restoration — and the main tower was destroyed by 1874. It was rebuilt (in reinforced concrete) in 1965, and finally in 2011 the black roof tiles were returned to the authentic red tiles from the time of its destruction. The castle grounds contain around a thousand cherry trees, and hydrangeas, as we see here.

The castle is in the modern city of Aizu-wakamatsu, after which it is usually named in English, but it is also known as Tsurugajô, or "Crane Castle".

Perhaps the most famous of Kyoto's temples, this is the "Gold pavilion." It was originally built in the 1300s, and given to the Shogun Ashikaga Yoshimitsu in 1397, but was destroyed in an arson attack in 1950. Rebuilt in 1955, the gold leaf covering was only completely restored in 1987. Like the "Silver pavilion," this is only a nickname, and the formal temple name is Rokuonji.

The white tiger has long been revered as a symbolic agent of the gods - and is one of the "Four deities" of feng shui. This is a graphic portrayal of a powerful, yet somehow unthreatening, animal.

Detail

No details of this artist are readily available. He signs his paintings with a seal for the first character ('Ino') of his given name only: this means 'wild boar', which might seem surprising, but it is a fairly common element in names.

This spectacular entrance, Yômeimon, is the central feature of this World Heritage site in Nikkô (Tochigi). The whole site is a Shinto shrine (Tôshôgu) built in the early 1600s to honour Tokugawa Ieyasu, the very first Shogun of the Tokugawa era. Since he was the most powerful man in Japan at the time, perhaps it is not so surprising that for a Shinto building this is unusually ornate.

Haruyo has added an inscription by her signature: "A smile for you..."

The artist Morita Haruyo studied both Japanese art and kimono design, and she combines these with elements of her own Western-influenced technique. (She travelled to London in 1977, exactly the year I [Brian Chandler] first came to Tokyo.)

Morita is her family name: she follows the tradition of signing - and sealing - paintings with her given name only.

1053: Fuji from Oshino

Mt. Fuji from the east, this time from a beautifully kept Japanese garden in Oshino.

As Mount Olympus was the home of the Greek gods, so Mt. Fuji (3776 metres above sea level) has its place as the symbol of Japan. Although most popular tourist pictures show the view from the south, with the bullet train passing below Mount Fuji, the best views are from the north and east sides.

Here he stands in splendid isolation, holding his shaku or ritual baton, and also wearing a sword. He is surrounded by plants and other auspicious objects, including the pagoda of Hōryū-ji, a temple he is said to have founded. He was very impressed by Chinese Buddhism, had a large influence in creating a constitution based on law — the writing at the top (in Chinese) begins with his famous maxim "Value peace above all" (以和為貴).

The artist Morita Haruyo studied both Japanese art and kimono design, and she combines these with elements of her own Western-influenced technique. (She travelled to London in 1977, exactly the year I [Brian Chandler] first came to Tokyo.)

Morita is her family name: she follows the tradition of signing - and sealing - paintings with her given name only.

Kannon sits on a lotus blossom observing this peaceful scene: the white horse has emerged from the golden gourd as if from Aladdin's lamp. The picture is full of symbols of riches, and not one horse, but nine in total — the uma-ku iku in the original title is written "horse-nine go", but is an auspicious pun on the ordinary word umaku, meaning "(go) well".

Achala
© Shibuya Sofu

1000: Achala

Achala is one of the Five Wisdom Kings, a bright blue figure with a fierce expression and a background of fire. He is know in Japan as Fudo, which is a translation of the meaning of Achala, "immoveable", symbolised by his seat on a solid rock. Around him is written a sutra in the Siddham script brought from India more than a thousand years ago and now only used in East Asia for Buddhist scriptures.

The subject may be from South Asia, but the painting style is unmistakeably Japanese, the breaking waves in particular strongly reminiscent of Hokusai and the other woodblock artists.

Tower Bridge
© Seibi-sha

1000: Tower Bridge (Yamashita)

The artist made a tour of Europe in 1961, resulting in a series of depictions of landmarks such as Tower Bridge in London.

Born in 1922 in Tokyo, Yamashita had a troubled childhood: - after a bullying incident at school involving a knife, he was classified as mentally handicapped, and placed in an institution. His genius for creating harie (pasted paper pictures) was soon realised, though, and eventually he featured in many exhibitions across Japan. He remained an eccentric: from 1940 to 1954 he roamed the country wearing only an undershirt (it is said), earning himself the moniker of "The naked artist wanderer". Although he travelled widely seeking material, including an extended tour of Europe in 1961, it seems he did not work in the field, but would return to his studio and create images entirely from memory. He died in 1971 at the early age of 49.

His story has been dramatised a number of times, in the 1956 film known as "The naked general" and later television series.

420: Dragon gorge (Kayomi)

Where do dragons come from? There is a gorge called Longmen ("Dragon-gate") on the Yellow River that flows so fast it is said that any carp that managed to swim up it will turn itself into a dragon, the King of the scaly beasts.

This picture is ideally suited to the traditional vertical format. Two carp leap upward, while a confident dragon shows his mettle at the top. This seemingly impossible climb is used as a metaphor for achievement in the world—and there is further good fortune indicated by the combination of pine and carp. (More wordplay: this can be read shôri, which with different characters means "victory".)

According to her own website (http://kazuppo.net) she was born in Tokushima (on the island of Shikoku) in June of 198x, and likes polar bears, cows, natural minerals and more.

This is almost certainly a brush name: the family name Fukami means "deep-well", and Kazuha ("ten-thousand leaves") is an alternative reading of the name attached to the famous collection of ancient Japanese poems, Man'yōshū.

300: Flower time (Anne of Green Gables)

A scene from the Nippon Animation version of Anne of Green Gables, rendered as an oil painting by Tan Xiaoyong. The stories are based on the series of books by the Canadian, Lucy Maud Montgomery, set in Prince Edward Island and published in the early twentieth century.

The Japanese TV animation series was made in 1979; its title is Akage-no-An ("red-haired Anne"), referring to the principal character — strictly speaking "Anne of Green Gables" is the title of the first book in the series.

The artist Tan Xiaoyong was born in Chongqing, China, but moved to Japan in 1992 and now lives in Tokyo. He is active in many other fields of illustration as well as anime.

300: Mansfield Air Spectacular (Wysocki)

The American artist Charles Wysocki (1928-2002) was born in Detroit, but spent almost all his working life on the West Coast of the USA, in Los Angeles, and in Lake Arrowhead where he settled, just to the east.

His rather charming primitive style is instantly recognisable: full of warm wit, but rigidly refusing to comply with any conventional "rules" of perspective.
