This essay is a short biography and a rough draft of Okisada ASAOKA (Obsolete name: Nobuyoshi KANOU, 1800-1856). His name is not included in any encyclopedias of art as a heading, except that only a short reference by an compiler under the heading of "[Zotei] Kogabikou: Remarks to the Old Painters, [Additional edition]" is found in some materials. His detailed profile is never known under the present situation. Regretting the fact, I have been working on the research of this unknown Compiler. The essay below is not based on all of the original texts and materials (archives), and I expect that his profile would be further studied and the original texts and materials would be fully explored.
