    I have several postcards depicting water colors of the various stations of the Enoden in Kamakura. The artist's last name is Yamada and the title of the series appears to be 'resshima no sketchi' or something along those lines. Does anyone know of this artist? I would like to learn more about him/her.

    "Resshima" doesn't make sense, so you must misread it. Can you upload the Japanese title of the series or the signature of the artist?

    Yes, I misread it. It's actually 'rettou', (archipelago).

    It looks like his name is Yamada 'Baku' but I'm thinking that maybe 'Baku' is a pen name, since it means 'tapir'. I've never heard of that as a Japanese name.

    Yes, his name is Yamada Baku. He has a blog site, but there is no article in the page.

    You should upload the photo in the first place since it's quite easy for us to read his name and the title of the series, and we didn't need to search it...
    Incidentally, 獏 can be a male given name.
