Suetaka was a Shinto priest at Kamo in Kyoto. In his younger days he had studied poetry under Tachibana Chikage in Edo. He was closely associated with many of the poets and artists in Kyoto and Osaka during the early nineteenth century. He contributed many prefaces and other literary embellishments to the Ehon and other books published at that time.
