Beizan Miwada was a Shinto priest in Matsuyama, Ehime Prefecture, from the Edo to Meiji period. His calligraphy, written after drinking large amounts of sake, is gaining in popularity due to his frank writing style and grand attitude. The person who praised Beizan as the greatest calligrapher of the past 500 years in Japan and made his name widespread throughout the country was none other than Hatsujiro Yamamoto.
