Takahashi Deishu, Yamaoka Tesshu’s (1836–1888)
brother-in-law, was born in Edo as a member of
the Yamaoka samurai clan, but was later adopted
by marriage into the Takahashi family. Deishû,
a vassal of the shogunate, was famed for his
skill as a spearman, which he learnt from his
grandfather.

Deishu served as a minister in the district of
Ise and was an important figure in the last days
of the Tokugawa government. He retired from public
life soon after the Meiji Restoration of 1868 in
order to devote himself to poetry, calligraphy,
and painting.

Standing high
in the great sky
the peak of Fuji
also inseparable
from the earth.
