Hakuin was born in Suruga Province (present Shizuoka Prefecture). He studied with Tanomura Chokunyû (1814-1907) and became his best pupil.

In 1883, when he was 17 years old, he went to Kyoto and became a disciple of Chokunyû. In these days Hakuin called himself "Tanomura Hakuin", but after he married in 1900, he changed his name into "Tanaka Hakuin", Tanaka being the surname of his wife.
His views in the Nanga style are very similar to Tanomura Chikuden (1777-1835) and Chokunyu and he was an expert on Tanomura school paintings.
Later, Hakuin established a private painting school in Kyoto with many pupils and later in Hofu city of Yamaguchi Prefecture.
