  • Gyotaku-("Gyo" = fish, and "taku" = impression — the Japanese Art of Fish Printing) the Japanese Art of Fish Printing originated in Japan over 100 years ago as a way of recording trophy catches prior to the modern day camera. Today Gyotaku has become a popular art form enjoyed by many, and the prints are said to bring good luck to fishermen.
