In due time Toyohiko became Go Shun's best pupil. After Go Shun's death Toyohiko and Matsumura Keibun (1779 -1843) were without any doubt the leading Kyoto painters of the Shijô school. Toyohiko was a versatile artist, capable of handling many subjects, certainly an excellent painter of figures, but perhaps most skilled at (atmospheric) landscapes. Many pupils applied for training under Toyohiko, and apart from Go Shun, he was undoubtedly the most important teacher of the Shijô School.
