Koho's prints reflected a blend of traditional ukiyo-e aesthetics with contemporary elements, capturing the elegance and modernity of Japanese women during the early 20th century. His skillful portrayal of feminine beauty and his collaborative work with publishers like Watanabe Shozaburo have solidified his place as an esteemed shin-hanga artist.
