Features: Echigo no Kami Kanesada was renowned as a master of the dynamic notare hamon. It is said that Tsuda Echizen no Kami Sukehiro began producing such dynamic hamon. Kanesada often imitated the hamon of Sukehiro and Inoue Shinkai, creating many works similar to theirs. He also produced various other styles of hamon, showcasing a wide range of creativity.

Aoi Art’s Comment: Kanesada, originally a disciple and later adopted, took on the name Echigo no Kami. Due to a decree prohibiting the use of official titles without permission, he changed his name to Sakakura Gon no Shin. Initially signed as Echigo no Kami Kanesada, he later signed as Sakakura Gon no Shin Terukane. His dynamic notare hamon is exceptionally well-executed.
