|The eldest son of Takase Kanatake, in 1883 Kozan started working in the export department of Ikeda Seisuke's ceramic company in Kobe before transferring in 1887 to the metalwork division of Ikeda's Kyoto branch, where he studied under Tomiki Isuke. In 1893, he started his own business selling metalwork both domestically and abroad. In 1910 the Crown Prince travelled to Kyoto and purchased several of Kozan's astonishingly realistic articulated insects.|
