Names:
Other: Kuichi Uchida 
Dates:  1844 - 1875
Active:  Japan
 
  
Uchida was the most important Japanese photographer of the Meiji period for he was the only one who was allowed to photograph the emperor. At that time it was forbidden for any commoner to look upon the emperor, punishable by death.
 
Uchida learned photography from his adopted father Matsumoto Ryojun who had learned the art from a Dutch physician Pompe van Meerdervoort. Uchida opened his first studio in Osaka in 1865. The following year he moved his studio to Tokyo and in 1866 he opened a second one in Yokohama.
