Soga Shôhaku was an eccentric painter of the mid-Edo period. He is known for his distinctive painting style, in emulation of Muromachi period ink painting.

Shôhaku claimed to be a 10th-generation descendant (or tenth-generation down a master-student lineage) of Soga Jasoku, but is believed to have had no actual connection.[1]
