Kanamaru Genzo

​Kanamaru studio name captioned in negative, Kanamaru Genzo (1832 - ?) was an early pioneer in Tokyo where he opened his studio in Asakusa, Umayabashi. He is recorded as taking on Tamamura Kozaburo as an apprentice, but once the latter left in 1874 nothing more is known of the studio. Kanamaru�s work is of the utmost rarity.​
