Yamamura Koka was born in Shinagawa, Tokyo in 1885. He began studying painting under Ogata Gekko, later graduating from the Nihonga Department of the Tokyo School of Fine Art. After graduation, he was accepted as an exhibitor at the Bunten. In 1916, he entered a painting into the 3rd Inten (titled: Capital of Hellfire and Quiet Brilliance), and it immediately won him nomination as an Inten member. That same year he participated in the Shin-Hanga (New Woodblock) movement with artists such as Ito Shinsui. Koka continued to exhibit excellent works annually, and in 1935 was selected as a judge into the Reformed Imperial Art Institute (Kaiso Teikoku Bijutsu-in). In 1940, he was drafted into the army, traveled to the southern front, and painted tributary portraits of all members of the Imperial family. He died on January 25th, 1942.
His works are in museums worldwide, like british museum, rijks museums, etc.
