The Label of
with Bujin-ga Label
A black horse running from the country of myths (heaven).
It represents our wish that our shochu spreads out from Takachiho, a town of myths, to the world. The Suibokuga (ink-wash painting) label is painted by Masayuki Kojo, the Bujin-ga artist.
An eye catching label design of the very powerful army horse.
Beginning in 2014, Masayuki Kojo started his activity as an ink-and-wash BUJINGA (samurai painting) artist on a full scale.
He does not capture “samurai” not as a fighter but as “a person who has preparedness”, and draws the “moment” of the preparedness which samurai has in mind as a BUJINGA painting.
He was inspired by a dish of an Italian chef whom he had associated with before, and started to draw painting even on a mat which is usually used for protection.
What has made news is his bold and delicate composition and the composition that is somewhat easy and familiar to Japanese.
In recent years, it has become a hot topic that he worked on COLLABO BUJINGA which depicted the moment of preparedness of the characters of popular animations in addition to world-famous movies.
