Fûko successfully followed the line of Kikuchi Yôsai (1788-1878).

Fûko came to the studio of Yôsai after his education with Oki Ichiga (1798-1855) and Satake Eikai (1803-1874). When grown to maturity he specialized in historical subjects and he became a member of the Imperial Fine Arts Academy and a juror for the first four exhibitions of the Bunten.
