First of all, I want to say that I feel really lucky to find Shunga Gallery which has introduced a fantastic new world for me. I wouldn't know the existence of these amazing erotic art if it wasn't because of you. I want to thank you for sharing your great knowledge with us and I'm really excited about the collection that I'm going to start.

Many thanks for this and all previous articles, I immensely enjoy reading your posts.

I like very much all what you show on this site.
Your documentation is outstanding, as it does not only concern japanese pictures but related chinese and European only. Please continue.
Courcelle, France
A whole library could (should?) be written on all these subjects. Thank heaven for artists and those who can enjoy sex for what it is: an essential part of life, pleasurable, enjoyable, and at times even laughable!
Your website is somehow one more oasis in the middle of the desert.
Joao Barroso, Elkins (United States)
I definitely enjoy these extra subject studies.

Today's material included at least two excellent, educational articles. Thanks.

Thank you for your website and all the effort and time you put into it.
Joao B, United States
Very informative article. Japan is a country that’s always fascinated me (I never been however!). And today I learnt that sex toys have been around in the land of the rising sun for a long time. 

Thanks so much for sharing.

Exquisite collection! My favorite post so far! Amazing to see so much artists from around the globe sharing the same taste and giving a round a with their own style.
As usually, very good researches on this uncommon theme, you have to write folios on your researches and propose it to all over the world city museum with important Ukiyo-e Collection.
Sebastien (France)
I consistently enjoy your writings enlightening us of all things shunga. Please keep it up. The time for my re-indulgence is none too far as your website is permanently one of my browser start pages. Thanks.

As a long time lurker, I was pleasantly surprised to see good copies of this iconic image come up for sale. So of course I grabbed the chance to buy and the process was easy, efficient and the item arrived well-packaged to Sydney, Australia not long after.  The quality of the print is superb.  Thank you!
Gabby Malpas (Sydney, Australia)
...I love your challenges, and your capacity to make true your dreams, and to make revival the Ukiyo-e old art in 21 Century. Congratulations!
 Sebastien B.
Shunga art is as fascinating as elusive it can get. You can really feel the passion and dedication the author has spent investigating, organizing and preparing the excellent compilations of high quality pictures really well documented and dated. It’s been a great finding this very web-page for us shunga lovers!
Amazing. Thanks for your blog,
Rene Donais
To me the keyword in shunga is passion. The artists were often at there most passionate when creating this particular type of art. The images themselves convey undiluted passion in every form. And now, we finally see a website passionately devoted to shunga. Keep it up!
