First of all, let me apologize for using again this section for a non-sword-related question. I have just received a vintage chawan (see this post) and I would love to know what the calligraphy on the box means:
The maker is one Kato Kageaki, who was 12th of the Kato line. I can indeed distinguish a 12 in the third and fourth characters ( += ) of the top-left writing, but that's it for what concerns my Japanese skills... Can one of the ever-helpful members of this forum let me know about the rest?
Thanks in advance for any help!
