Join Our New Free Blog Contest and Win This Charming Shunga Gem

Welcome again to our new blog contest in which you can win a lovely shunga piece. Just like the previous contest in March the rules are simple. All you have to do is to comment to this post and leave your name (in the comment box below this page!).

Expires May 4

You can subscribe until Saturday, 4 May (expires at midnight!). The winner will be announced both through our newsletter and the social media platforms on which we are active on Monday, May 6 after randomly selecting a name by drawing it out of a bowl the old fashioned way.


So what’s in it for the winner? A rare koban-sized shunga featuring a furtive rendez-vous between an attentive samurai and a female traveller wearing a giant hat making love behind a giant curtain in the open-air. The insert features a male smoking a pipe.


It was designed by an unidentified member of the Utagawa school around 1850. Koban size: 4 4/5” x 3 2/3” inches. Fine impression (with metallic pigment details), color and very good condition. Slight folding (barely visible).

I really like the furtive glance of the Samurai. It seems that at that moment he realizes that there is someone watching his indiscretion. The pipe is a nice touch!
