The first Kirie-zu was printed in 1755 by 吉文字屋 Kichimonjiya.
Until the year 1775 he had produced eight detailed maps.
By 1846, the shop of 近江屋五平 Omiya Gohei sold 31 maps. He produced maps in three colors.

The high times of Kirie-zu was around 1849 until early Meiji, when 尾張屋清七 Owariya Seishichi
produced the 尾張屋版 Owariya Edition (金鱗堂版). He used five colors and the maps looked almost like 錦絵 Nishiki-E prints.
