Inagaki Tomoo (稲垣知雄) was born in Tokyo and graduated from the Okura Commercial 
High School. He was introduced to printmaking by Kôshirô Onchi and Un'ichi Hiratsuka in 
1923, when the older artists were producing the magazine Shi to hanga ("Poetry and 
Prints": 詩と版画). He acknowledged a great debt to the two masters, attending Shi to
 hanga meetings regularly and thereby taking his only tutelage in printmaking. He said 
that "Poetry and Prints convinced me that I wanted to be a print artist."
