Toshikata's position in the history of Japanese print is an interesting one, acting almost as a bridge between traditional ukiyo-e and modern Japanese print. He was one of the best students of Yoshitoshi, who succeeded in blending the traditional ukiyo-e style with Western realism. Toshikata later took on Kaburagi Kiyokata as a pupil, who was to become the teacher of Ito Shinsui, Kawase Hasui and Kasamatsu Shiro, the artists who would lead the Shin Hanga (New Print) movement - the renaissance of Japanese woodblock print.
