Yuji Moriguchi and His Disturbing Schoolgirl Fantasies

4 min

Yuji Moriguchi is taking us into the world of secret sensual fantasies of seemingly innocent-looking adolescent girls (often schoolgirls in uniform). Besides these girls, his erotic vocabulary includes bestiality with octopuses (large and small), dogs, snails, koi carps (Fig.11.), shibari (bondage) elements, wooden dildo‘s, and monsters and spirits originating from ancient Japanese folktale and mythology.

Undisguised Lust

In his art Yuji examines controversial subjects such as the portrayal of young girls displaying their undisguised lust. His art provides a nice mixture of classical Asian and contemporary Western painting techniques.


He was trained in the traditional Japanese style of painting but his first love was the manga genre (which was actually started by Katsushika Hokusai). As a manga artist he is much sought after, and works under the pen name Namida Zubon.

A lot of Yuji’s work spring to live in a special way in which the future owner of his paintings plays an important part. The commissioner offers the artist the themes he is interested in, his preferences and special requests. This kind of relationship between artist and client (surimono*) was also not uncommon during the Edo** era.

Yuji seems to have a lifelong fascination with Hokusai’s The Dream of the Fisherman’s Wife (see Fig.4. and 5) since it is, besides the school girls, by far the most included element in his paintings.
