In this paper, at first, I try to re-examine the traditional view about the biography of Unkoku TOGAN (1547-1618). For we know little about the reason why and sources from which that traditional view is admitted so widely and the dates of his works are, in most cases, merely deduced from the dates of edifices where his works exist now. The second step of this paper is the stylistic examination to make clearer the development of his works than before. The author is happy if this paper might be the preparation for a further systematic study of Togan.
