Katsushika Hokusai was born on the 23rd day of 9th month of the 10th year of the Horeki period (October or November 1760) to an artisan family, in the Katsushika district of Edo, Japan.  His childhood name was Tokitaro.  It is believed his father was the mirror-maker Nakajima Ise, who produced mirrors for the shogun.  His father never made Hokusai an heir, so it's possible that his mother was a concubine.  Hokusai began painting around the age of six, possibly learning the ar (showing 500 of 11418 characters).
