Bio

Fukuda Kodōjin’s lifetime coincided with tumultuous change in Japan, as the country went from a feudal state to an urban, industrialized, and militarized nation. Kodōjin rejected the entire package of modernity, choosing instead to live in an isolated village on the outskirts of Kyoto. There he wrote poetry, painted, and practiced calligraphy, emulating the scholar-poets of ancient China.
