History of the 400th year of Iba
Iba Sensen was founded by Kanzaemon ITAYA, a merchant of Hamamatsu who rose to Edo with Ieyasu TOKUGAWA.At that time, Ibaya Ibakaya was named after his first birthplace, Toshu Iba-mura Village (present-day Higashi-Iba-cho, Naka Ward, Hamamatsu City, Hamamatsu City).In the middle of the Edo period, Senzaburo ITAYA was the official name of 'Iba Senzaburo' (literally, "Immortal Immortal"), which was the nickname of Senzaburo KATSAYA.

At the time of its founding, it was granted the use of the Tokugawa shogunate, and the construction of the Edo Nihonbashi Bridge was completed, but in the Keicho era, it began to sell washi (Japanese paper) and bamboo products at Edo Nihonbashi Horie Town (present location in Nihonbashi, Nihonbashi, Chuo Ward, Tokyo Prefecture).After the latter part of the Edo period, Uchiwa fan was started, and Ukiyoe began to be published as publishers such as Toyokuni, Kuniyoshi, Hiroshige and so on.

Iba Sensen's thinking of trade
We focus on the traditional culture of Japan, the inheritance of the culture of the Edo culture, and the design and color of Edo in the design of the product.The materials are made of bamboo, Japanese paper, and textiles, which are strictly selected, and are manufactured by skilled artisans.
In addition, through the 400 years of business, the bond between people and people is important, and the trust of customers is being promoted as a company that serves the region and society in the first place.
The original work
Is the publisher the publishing producer of what I say now?
I will introduce some ukiyo-e. There you can get a glimpse of the relationship between the original and the ukiyoe master at the time, and the anti-bone spirit of Edo.

And the publisher was the character of Ibasen.Since the enthusiasm of the people is so enthusiastic, Ibasen is not blamed by the quick steps to collect the picture and cut the printing blocks.Well, well ...
Iba Sensen, the publisher of the book, also belonged to the utagawa school, which was a member of Kuniyoshi, as it was the government of the Edo bakufu (Japanese feudal government headed by a shogun).His rights were never taken away, and even before that, he published a satirical picture with his antibone spirit and his criticism of the bakufu.

Since the reform of Tenbo, actors' ukiyo-e has been banned from publication. Then, the publisher and the publisher devise it in an example of how to publish it somehow. This picture says, "This is not a ukiyo-e. It's graffiti. At that time, people could see Utaemon, Koshiro, and Umeyuki. When it came to the cat in the middle, there were two cats. I'm dancing happily. This sense of playfulness is a luxury.
