Kōhō made more than thirty woodblock prints of flowers and (or) birds in the early 1900s. Many of these prints were long and narrow (e.g., 350 x 80 mm). This format was first used by Japanese printmakers in the early 1700s and was called a pillar print because the prints were narrow enough to be attached to the wooden pillars supporting the roof of houses built at that time. Kōhō is one of the few twentieth century printmakers who continued to use this format. Sixteen examples of his pillar prints are shown in this gallery (i.e., pictures 1-16).
