Eishosai Choki, also known as Momokawa Choki, was a designer of ukiyo-e style Japanese woodblock prints who was active from about 1786 to 1808. He is known for his images of bijin (beautiful women) who are shown as lithe and slender. Choki, along with Utamaro, was a pupil of Toriyama Sekien (1712–1788). He was possibly the adopted son of Sekien, although the details of his life are unclear.
