Ginko, who worked between 1873 and 1908 under several studio names, is best known for his prints in the ukiyo-e style as a member of the Utagawa school. He worked with a variety of subjects including depictions of beautiful women and actors, landscapes, book illustrations, and contemporary events. He was jailed and fined in 1889 for satirically depicting Emperor Meiji as a skeleton.
