    Thank you all for your help with my NBTHK certificate and what a school it can be. It is sad that i could not get a more detailed opinion regarding school from NBTHK, there are a lot of Masayoshi ..... One thought might it be the Aizu Shoami school? Is there anyone else who can possibly give me more clues in the search? // Robert

    My Tsuba by Masayoshi Can you help me, my question is which school can it be .... // Robert
  8. Here is my nice Tsuba by Masayoshi Masayoshi with the theme of dragonflies. The dragonfly in Japanese is tombo (蜻蛉) and in the Muromachi period kachimushi was its name (勝 虫). These characters for literally mean Victory Bug and gives us insight into how the bushi of the time admired the dragonfly. Bushi had observed the nature of the dragonfly to attack, and always move forward to the prey.

    Goto Seijo

    Goto Seijo Seijo, also known as Mitsutoyo, died in 1734. As a school founder, he made only a few tsuba. The other of the school, Seijo-Mitsuzane (died 1750), worked in relief and also made posts in the nunome style. He often used the water kite in his work and happy and beautiful flowers. During this time there was a demand for foreign designs, and this school proved to be many Tsuba in Canton and Namban style. Nidai and onwards used the same signature, 'Seijo'. The sixth Seijo, also known as Harumitsu, Sessai or Shiunchin, was known for its excellent compositions and details. The third to seventh generation worked in Edo, and lived in Shitaya and was known as Shitaya Goto.
