Sakurajima in Kagoshima prefecture (Kyushu) is an active volcano. It used to be an island, but became a peninsula after the eruption of 1914.

Hiromichi lived in Tokyo, where he studied Nanga painting with Komura Suiun (1874-1945), Matsubashi Keigetsu (1876-1963) and Fukuda Kôko (1883-1959). He was a winner of several prizes with the Nitten and others.
