Biography Okamoto, Ryusei (1949 - )
Yoshimi (as he was then called) Okamoto was born in Muroran in Hokkaido. As a teenager he worked in a local fishery, and that may have spurred his study of marine biology at Nihon University. Even at High School he was interested in woodblock prints, and after his graduation as a marine biologist, he decided to become a full-time artist.
