Hanji was a potter from Owari Nagoya. During the Bunsei period he painted various kinds of ceramics at the kilns of Tosendo and Shintôen. He also studied painting, first Ukiyo-e with Takamasa Mori (born 1791). but being displeased with him he changed to Nanga painting with Yamamoto Baiitsu (1783-1856).
