Many jizai okimono still exist by the metal craftsman Tomiki Muneyoshi from Kyoto, and Takase Kōzan (1869–1934) who learned his skill from Tomiki. Takase Kōzan, originally from Kanazawa, first worked at a trading company in Kobe, which made him excellent in sales management. In 1893, Takase started his own independent business in Kyoto. At the end of Meiji, his work was bought by the Crown Prince and then through the Taishō period (1912–1926) and early Shōwa period (first half of the 20th century), Takase continued to show his work in many expositions. At the time, in response to the high demand and many orders they used a workshop production system. Evidence of this can be seen in the molds for making a spiny lobster. which have been passed down in Tomiki’s workshop. They must have tried using molds in order to mass-produce jizai okimono. In this way the jizai okimono makers prospered. With the decline in the vogue for Japonisme, however, and the outbreak of the First World War, their role in export crafts ended. At present only two craftsmen are left who make jizai okimono. One, Tomiki Muneyuki, is a descendent of the Tomiki family; the other, Mitsuda Haruo (born 1980), is a descendent of Tomiki’s disciple.
