Donshû was born in Awa. He went to Kyôto where he was adopted by the important government official Õhara Donkyô (1761-1810). Like his father, Donshû received his training from the Shijô-style painter Shibata Gitô (1780-1819). He was well acquainted with the bunjin Nukina Kaioku (1778-1863), who also came from Awa.
